Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
After reading comments about the Movie "Fury" I can still hear the casings from the 7.62 or 50 Cal. rolling around on the tank. One would nearly bust their ass slipping on them, or sometimes did.
I know you all can recall the smell of the Main gun as it recoiled either a casing or Aft Cap. Spent many a night at Graf down range with the turret full of smoke with the red light shining through the smoke and the whining noise of the turret motor and tank engine.
Damn Right!! IT WAS! THE BEST JOB I EVER HAD.......
The movie is COURAGE UNDER FIRE, a 1996 movie with Meg Ryan. The tank battle is loosely based on the Battle of 73 Easting during Desert Storm. Sgt. Nels Andrew "Andy" Moller, Ghost Troop, 2ACR was KIA in that battle February 26, 1991 by what some believe was friendly fire.
