Default Sherman Tank In Taji, Iraq 2010

Our Blackhawk unit was stationed in Taji, Iraq in 2010. In the center of the base was this Sherman tank.:



I always wondered if anyone ever knew it was there and sent some emails to a few friends who had an interest in armor about it.
A couple years later I inquired about it on a couple of popular gun forums. I was glad to see a fella named Cavscout told me they got orders to load it up and bring it to Kuwait Port.

I hope it made it home.

That's a cool picture, thanks for sharing, that's a good thing it's coming home. I would've thought it'd be in worse shape than it looks..

Wonder if that 1919 shroud is attached to anything
