Thank you Tango.

Thanks Tango!

The shot of the Iwo Wall brought tears to my eyes that I'm still trying to blink back with a lump in my throat.

The Thing! My father was a Seabee CPO commanding a platoon of Jeeps with M40 106mm recoilless anti-tank rifles. Seabees use Marine combat weapons and training and there was some talk about giving the Ontos to some Seabee anti-tank units, but it never came about. I think the Seabees would have loved the Ontos; it had the same engine as their 2-1/2 ton trucks and it would have been really useful (even without the turret and guns) as a tractor.
