    Trust gets you killed, love gets you hurt, and being REAL gets you hated.

    A R for all the tankers on board im surprised not more comments have been made as Cambrai was the beginning of one of the most iconic veh ever , whether it be chally , leclerc , abrams , leopard etc etc all stemmed from my boy willie .Big Willie n little Willie , never did like the fact they were named after a kraut kaisser tho .

    I agree brother.

    While I was not a tanker as a mechanized Infantryman I sure as hell worked with them a lot. I appreciated them a lot. I may have given tankers a ration of shite whenever I could but was always glad to have them along for the fight!!!
