Canadian Forces, LT(R), Royal Canadian Armoured Corps... not much of a rank except leading a Tank Troop is the best job in the CF! Got out before 'field work' Lt turned into 'Admin suck' Capt. Hats off to the 20+ year guys! Anyone here get to experience the Heavies in Afgh?

That would be really cool to work with the tanks I think. And yeah, I made it over there, but my experience was from a carrier off the coast sooooooo.....not really.

The waiting time is crazy right now. I put my name on the MK school list in Jan of this year and I am hoping for a Nov - Jan school date. I think that is considered pretty quick these days.

Yes, Marine Tank Officer here. Plt Commander in '11 and now an XO in '13. Helmand both times. Still very kinetic. We run the M1A1, but there are still Danish Leopard 2A5's in country, although they NEVER go outside the wire.

One of my best friends was with USMC, (I think I have the unit correct) A Co 5th Tanks on Okinawa & later in RVN.

He lost a tank (M-60 Patton I think) in RVN to a sapper but made it out of RVN in one piece with limited injuries.

Congrats to you tankers ... you guys were a welcome site in the field to the grunts ...

BTW ... in RVN, if I spent any time on the ground outside the wire ... I made sure to stay away from the tanks as they were "magnets for RPG & small arms fire".

USN Chief, retired almost as many years ago as years I was on active duty. The civilian sector has been good to me and finishing those degrees while on Active Duty has paid off.

Each year several of us retired military get together and hunt pheasant in SD. I am the only enlisted man in the group now that the other one from the Army special forces has sadly passed away. The Commander, Captain and Admiral (O-8) all drive Honda Ridgeliner's.
