    Grumps here, as I recall my tanks name was called Corruption and when I first got to Germany in July of 72 I endded up going to Bad Tolz for radio school, about 15 miles from Munchin. Same time as all that trouble went down at the games. I also remember having a stereo in the tank for awhile, ( may have been an 8 track ) that was nice for the long road marches. I was in Erlangen until Feb of 75. Just a note, I was also in Atlanta when the bomb in the park went off, only two games I've ever been to. I don't think I'll go to anymore of them.

    I noticed that there has been a 3 year gap since the last entry on this forum so here goes. I was at Ferris Barracks back in the 60s. Way back. I have memories though particularly fond of the place. The tank titled civilian at heart said it all. That tank was at Erlangen back in the 60s. I left the US Army in February 1968 then joined the Air Force Reserve in 1978. Retired 5 years ago in 2006. We'll exchange stories when I hear from you all.

    Did the tanks get christened and hold the same name with different crews?

    A bit like the notion with boats that it's bad luck to change a boat's name?

    Or could a crew change the tank's name?

    I can only tell you what I saw. Bad luck? Perhaps! Going to Erlangen was bad luck in my opinion. You would have to understand the cold war era of the 60s with Viet Nam and all. Our training in the Army was not good during that period. My AIT was in artillery but I ended up in an armor battalion, in a ground survellience platoon (recon) performing extra duty, guard duty, KP, etc. Our mission was to slow down a.k.a. "speed bump" the Russian if they poured into Germany until reenforcements from the states arrived. In the 70s Viet Nam was winding down. But the tank name (civilian at heart) was there in the tank park. Since even some of the tank commanders were draftees like myself that particular commander liked it and did not change it. Then again the name could have been resurrected. Draftees would not think about the luck issue. I know I wouldn't back then. No one would consider tradition when tradition was not in the minds of draftees. Only going home.
