Your Gulf War Unit: India Co. 3/23
I was with India 3/23 and I swear I saw that same tank in your pic. We were shocked to see the trees and 3 other marines and I went to check it out. As we approached 2 iraqi tanks pulled up into that tree line and fired on us. We ran for some Iraqi bunkers between us and the trees and waited for our TOWs to take them out. Later that day some crazy jihadi fired on us from a water tower nearby, he bought it as about 100 marines returned fire at the same time. We went back later and searched through that agri compound where you took these pics looking for war trophies. I had a camera but most of my film got ruined so I don't have many pics. Thanks for sharing.
