I was going through some old photos and found this one of me while I was in Kuwait back in 1998. We were there for an exercise and we were in some really hot weather. I must say that after being inside the belly of an M1A1 that I have more respect for tankers! God Bless them! This photo of me is me manning the Tank Commander and the 50 Caliber. While in Kuwait we experienced temperatures at about 120 degrees and the driver passed out. They needed someone to man the driver’s seat so they put me in it. I stripped down to my skivvies because it was so hot in there. All I remember was a pool of sweat after we got done. I think I lost some weight while I was over there. I should go back so I can lose some more.
