People (aka leaders) are mostly concerned with securing their piece of history and not learning from history. Does the Pershing tank carry his name sake?
I do believe you are right about that tank. I think that it was a WWI item, wasn't it?
We need more men like him running this country.
I think it was later because they used them to play the German Panther in the Battle of the Bulge movie. My son and I saw one at the tank museum in Maryland. My mind is getting fuzzy about dates and details though.
was a major upgrade to the old sherman m4 in the last year of the 2nd World War. it was armed with a bigger gun than the german tiger tank in an attempt to field a tank that could go head on with the tigers. it was later upgraded again after the war. btw during the reagan administration we also fielded an intermediate range nuclear missile the Pershing II, that was named after john blackjack pershing, in bases in italy, germany and turkey. these were later withdrawn and destroyed with the agreement between us and the former soviet union to get rid of all intermediate ranged nuclear missiles.
