Armor- The Combat Arm of Decision!

M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tanks
      From the plains of Russia to the sands of Kuwait, the tank has played an important role in the battles of this century. The Armored Soldiers of the 20 th century have brought a new dimension to the arena of land combat- combining the best elements of firepower, maneuver, and shock effect.

      I served as a M1A1 Abrams driver from December, 1994 until December, 1995 in Bravo Company, 2 nd Battalion, 68 th Armored Regiment in Baumholder, Germany. I was in 2 nd Platoon on Bravo 21 , the Platoon Leader's tank. Lt. Matthew Hank was my tank commander, with Sgt. Tyrone Walton as my gunner and Pvt. Isaac Scribner in the loader's spot. Our crew worked very well together and shot "Distinguished" in our Tank Table VIII (8) gunnery in Kuwait. (I think our score was 945 out of a possible 1000 points- not bad.)
