    By the way, y'all may also want to check out www.tank-net.org and their forums. Some interesting stuff in there.

    I did tank training at Ft. Knox. 1964 (the year they shoot some scenes for the movie Goldfinger). Then went to Germany and was never assigned to a tank. The only track vehicles I drove was a M577, and a M114. I was a member of The 2nd ARC.

    I was a CAV Medical PSG with the NE Army National Guard. I can't tell you how much time I spent at Ft. Riley at the David C. Douthit (I hope I got that right) gunnery range up north in the past from 1985 to 2001.

    No, but I have driven the M1, rode inside, and dried my wet gear with the engine a few times. :cool:

    The engine is a great cooking area. Coffee, Ramen Noodles, even heating up MREs. I remember the 11 B guys who loved it when my platoon was attached to their company. Meant they would always have a place to dry things out.

    Hey, I used to heat my coffee water off an M1 exhaust when we had a tank platoon attached, does that count?
