Reservist and active duty Marine tankers train together. Photos by Pvt. Matthew Callahan

Note:  Still no discussion or path laid out for the future of Tanks in the Marine Corps.  Quite honestly I'm surprised they still exist.  The biggest factor in all this is probably the F-35.  Sustainment costs of that airplane and the promise that it will provide the same kind of firepower (in a different way) will probably see Tanks die in the near future.  We really should have paid attention when Amos and his little buddy Davis told us that the F-35 would change the way we do things.  Armor is out.  We'll be lucky to keep it in the Reserves.
