I was digging around in my storage building and came across these pics, I had forgotten all about them. These were taken in April, 1972 , when I was overseas in the Army. That is me on the right. We were sent to extract the tank.
Just in case anybody was not sure, 57 ton tanks do not float and do not extract very well when they are up to their turrets in mud and water. Fear not, we got it out, with the help of our trusty M88 VTR.
I hope everybody has a great Veterans Day.
