Unless we were actually doing gunnery, I always kept the cap installed to keep dust out of the tube. Nothing worse than swabbing a bore when you didn't even get to have fun shooting the thing. :\
I've got photos from that drill, though most of them are of the tanks on and around the turn-in pads by MATES.
I remember being told to do TCGST on the slick, but because I only knew the A3 from Fort Knox I was mostly clueless about most of the tasks on the list.
Same here, from 86-93. Started off in Charlie Troop, but while I was at Fort Knox for OSUT, they reorganized and when I got back everybody was in Alpha troop. Captain Nickel(s?) was my first Troop commander and 1SG Ricks was the top kick.
Only drilled twice on the slicks before we went to...
