I saw an M1A1 once that got buried in mud up to the turret. 3 M88’s couldn’t pull it out. They finally decided to padlock the hatches and wait for winter when the ground would be solid and they could chip it out. The Lieutenant who was the TC had to sign a hand receipt for the cost of an entire M1A1 Abrams tank and he was personally financially responsible for it until it was recovered 6 months later.

During the drawdown in 71-72 in Nam units had equipment that they had “acquired”, but had no paperwork for. Our unit had a water trailer that we used to wet down the haul roads and couldn’t turn it in. All the unit markings disappeared and it was left parked along a back road. And there was also the story about the unit that supposedly buried an entire earth mover. Wayne

I saw in person a National Guard unit that had one of those beer trucks - refrigerated with the kegs on the inside and the taps on the outside - in MERDC camo. Only for use during the middle weekend, you know…
