Our flying Tank

I had photos of that, and an M-48 that ran over a Russian Box mine about fifty yards from me. But, I'm sorry, that was i961, a long time ago. Floods, shed fires, and age makes me have not the foggiest idea what happened to them.

You should have seen the crew of that M-48. They ran for ten minutes, and it took them half a day to walk back. All it did was break a track and knock a fender of. For anti-tank purposes they used to stack those mines, but this one was in a creek bed and had probably washed down from somewhere else. I was sitting in my truck, about half asleep, reading a book when it popped. It sure got my attention.
Stoicism is nothing to get excited about....
