I always hated our deaths in training.

AAV's sink. Tanks flip. HMMWV's and "Jeeps" crashed. Trucks ran over guys. Marines died of hypothermia. One was left in the desert to die at 29 Palms.

Helicopters crash. Fixed wing assets crashed. Ships run into things. Occasionally we'd even shoot one of our own.

Tried hard to prevent the deaths during training, but it happens. So danged sad. frown

We used to joke about these things being shaped like a coffin. Dark humor.

Unfortunately things like this do happen. When I was at 2nd tanks at lejuene, buddy was with amtracks. They lost a vehicle practicing amphib landings. Front hatch wasn't secure and filled the track.luckily, the crew made it out.

RIP brothers.


If Obama is the answer, must have been a pretty stupid question.

There's a whole bunch of Sherman "DD" (dual drive) swimming tanks on the seabed off Omaha Beach. Nearly all of them sank within minutes of leaving the landing craft, taking their crews with them. It looks like the idiots who design our military equipment haven't learned much since WW 2!

The AAV isn't a "tank"

I worked with a Tanker officer for a while at Quantico. He was a good guy. liked guns and stuff. Anyways, he always referred to amtracs as 'tracked dumpsters'. It was kind of funny.

I do agree with that statement. Being a crew member on one of those things wasn't on my bucket list.
