dam....we was so young, i remember that , the reacks be in added 2 the tracks, they help out alot, but i still my seat in the track was a cratin charge, primed an ready....i remember a ace driver, who was ridin with us...fresh out of basic...he freaked out when i lit a cig...told him relax...look around him...cases of c4,ammo, rockets, cratin, shape charges, an a mic lic we pulled behind us. i just smiled at him, ssaid if we get hit, he'd not even feel a thing......the look on his face....priceless....
