Spring 1969. This view from tank A-34 shows A-9 pulled up between
two 3rd Platoon tanks. Mechanical problems with armored vehicles
during extended operations such has Remagen, in the Khe Sanh area
was something unit commanders had to deal with.
Support of maneuver units proved to be a challenge for 1/77 Armor
maintenance and support personnel. This was met with excellence
and determination. A job well done. Photo by Kevin Dunne April 1969.
