Those are the memories that mean the most...now if you could only get that same crew together to reminise about those times over a few cases of beer.

I didnt listen to any music in battle, but I brought tons of
Iron Maiden
Dio
Judas Priest
almost every Iron Maiden was on my person....recorded on cassette tapes, those 120 minute each side ones.

I listen to it before we attacked, but fear kept them off...but before that, it was all day and all night...those head phones for everyone was a life support system...batteries were a valuable thing, and the most common thing in packages we got.
I think eventually broke out the headphones on the cease fire, and remember listening to Judas Priest song called "One Shot at Glory" off the PainKiller album...that songs has stayed in my mind...I must have listened to it about 100 times since then. I remember listening to it and looking across the battlefield.

I got ahold of a radio as well. screwed it down on the dash. Never listened to it after g-day though. Tried to get the radio and speakers out of an abandoned mercedes. By the time I got back to it some smiling jack tracks had run over it with a tank. :lol:

I took a few different discs, but I mostly played Zeppelin on my cd player, wired into our CVC system. Would kind of get into a trance with it just driving and following the other tanks. My Sgt. had a fiw discs to play too, but I mostly remember him popping in meatloaf. The Lt. liked his lenny kravitz, early stuff before he was real popular.

Your Gulf War Unit: L Troop 3/3 ACR
I jammed on Queensryche's Empire cassette almost everynight during Desert Shield. I was 3rd Plt L Troop 3/3 Acr. We setup Camp Sheridan and had it pretty good. It will be 20 years this October that I deployed. I retired in Jan 2001. I still think about the Army alot and wish sometimes that I could go back in but...I'm content it's just that the military is still in my blood and will always be. Hooah!!!

When I knew I was going over it was Bon Jovi's "Blaze of Glory", when I got on the truck to the airport to come home it was "Here Comes the Sun".

Metallica's Ride the Lightning and Justice For All.......I was listening to "For Whom the Bell Tolls" as we rolled across the border at the start of the ground war.

I also listen to alot of "Lethal Tendencies" by Hallows Eve and Slayer "Captor of Sin" "Die by the Sword" and "Raining Blood"

I still listen to metal to this day.

I only had 2 cassettes with me. NIN Pretty Hate Machine and Led Zepplin Physical Graphiti.

I sort of had a Sundown ritual when it finally started getting cooler and the sweat soaked clothes began to dry. I would listen to Kashmere and have a smoke sitting on top of my track. Best part of my day. Still think of it everytime I hear that song.

I listened to whatever was playing on Armed Forces Radio and that wasn't very often. I was out in the field away from the compound a lot.

Kashmir is definitely a favorite, but Achille's Last Stand is what gets me thinking of us popping over berms and hungering for an oatmeal cookie bar....
