Don,

Besides the Museum statics at 2X, BDE and 1st Tank had M46's out front. But when a person staggers back from "Down Range" you don't pass either heading back to the "Ghetto". Especially when trying to avoid falling in one of those notorious "Turtle/ Binjo Ditches" Wink .

Hi Mark! Hi Folks!

- MarkHolloway

Isn't the M60 mount the same as found on the M114?


The pedestal (the post) for the M151 jeeps and the base units on the M114s both used the M-142 (I think it was 142) gun mount for the M-60 machine gun.

Having been a resident of the 'Maddog' Ghetto, I had confrontations with the big turtle ditch on the way/returning from the '2nd to None' club.

When returning from 'Down Range', I always used the road. less obsticles to fall in.

I had christmas lights in my window for most of the year, so that I could find my way home.

Cool

I don't believe in doing things 'half-assed'.

BTW The conex in the first is my Basic load storage, when down loaded from the tank. I always loved the 55 rounds of the M-1/IPM1. In Korea, I really loved the 10 'Beehive' rounds as part of the tanks basic load. I used to joke about 'trading' other tanks for a few more, even though they were fairly old.

In small arms combat load of 7.62mm & .50cal ammo were crates with the shipping labels from a Saigon (RSVN) ammo depot, always had me a bit nervous.

Don't feel like the Lone Ranger. In the `70s in Germany, we were firing 81MM ammo made in `44. Wonder why only every third round went off on impact?

You'll be more impressed when you find out that he did it "under fire". Laughing
