15th MEU armor at Red Beach (but where is tanks?) by Cpl. Frank Cordoba

I scoured Cpl Cordoba's photos for pics of Tank Bn but saw nothing.  Is the 15th MEU deploying without a tank platoon?  I don't know the answer but if that's the case then the question of the future of tanks in the Marine Corps is being answered.  If a unit isn't used then it's soon relegated to the Reserves...just before it's cast off completely.  It happened with our self propelled artillery and I fear that the Reserves are the future home of our Tank Bn's.  I hope not but the fear is real.
