Esteban, my father in law was a tank turret repair man in Vietnam with the 1st Cavalry Regiment
which was with the Americal Division
Even though he was a turret repair man, they helped work on the whole tank.
He did not go on patrols, but had to stand bunker guard on the perimiter of his fire base.
He went with me and my son and his boy scout troop to the Patton Museum at Fort Knox several years ago. We ate on base. Being back on base brought back a lot of memories for him.
I'm lucky being in SW Ohio. We have the Air Force museum at WRight Pat less than an hour away, and the Patton Museum two hours away.
The AirForce Museum is increadable!
