    Just a FYI for those of you. PB said "I can honestly say that I have never met a better/nicer/humbler bunch of guys in my time on God's green earth. "
    Is such a true statement and to have been apart of it for such a long time, it really still is humbling to this day to have witnessed a lot of it.
    If you watch this and at 28:15 the SS member that started this thread was there on that truck and for me watching the program for the first time, I can recount the day I first met him and shook his hand and as the program played, because of Red, I can see the action play out in my mind that was never said on the program.

    Thank You papabear for the insight of the Men in the convoys, and the innovation needed to stay alive. I had a very good Friend growing up that was a driver in fuel convoys, Nam.

    Speaking of fuel convoys...

    Once the tankers got to there field destination, the next task looks like this....

    Lots of potential Hazards there. I have to wonder if static electricity would be one?
