During Desert Storm we were still using M-60 tanks while the Army had M-1's.

Cpl Goodwin, that’s correct. Both 1st and 3rd Tank Bn had these while I was out there in that Big sand pit. Semper Fidelis Marine!

I have always felt a bit bad for my jarhead brothers because they had to use what we found obsolete or we replaced with new stuff, and they had to work with it. That changed some over the years and is not near as bad as it once was, and they even used (in come case like in Cold Weather Training in Bridgeport) civilian sources to outfit some units, so that they would have the best out there. Some commander took care of his Marines there for sure. Glad to see the changes but they surely could do more to outfit them.

The Marine Corps far too often has to borrow what they need from other services. Even when it came to big old dual rotor choppers the Marines had to stencil MARINES on them so Navy wouldn't take 'em. Warmest Regards, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Much Love, Sandy :)

We both get the leftovers from the Navy and Air Force. When I was active out motto was "We've been doing so much, with so little, for so long we are now qualified to do everything with nothing".
