Thank you Tango.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

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.
People get the government they deserve.

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.
