    Ok, let me re-introduce you to Reis the Beast, she is what she is, a 1995 M1078A0 who found me. One among many, who didn't get any gp-auction love. With zero bids, I dropped one on her, the last 2 minutes, not even expecting to have a chance. A few days later Reis the Beast was conceived. There really is no book to help with the birthing process, so I turned to this great and almighty site, STEEL SOLDIERS and my brothers for answers/help. Private FNG M1078MAN was born as well. Great people and the willingness to help continues to be shown by all here. Thank you.

    So the next step was a mad dash to the EUC-OLIGIST, and the pharmacy-bank. Once the I's were dotted/ the T's crossed, the EUC-OLIGIST gave her a clean EUC and title of health. It was at that point, we hunted for a PA or Doctor to make the large delivery.

    This is when I was introduced to some brothers who were trained PA;s in recovery. Mike started her journey, picking her up from Bragg, and protecting her from thieves, For 8 months he kept her, with naught a complaint. After multiple attempts, personal tragedy and even considering parting her out. I heard of this legend, a larger then life dude, and Master Mech/Dr, It didn't take long to figure out who the legend is, Dr Wes the man Simp. After consulting with him and his surgical team, he made the call to c-section this truck. It was no run of the mill transport and the delivery was no easy task, as she had to be recovered on top of a mountain, during colossal rain, storms and mud slides, he persevered as he continued the painful delivery dealing with Tornado's, fog, thunder storms and the obvious idiots on the road. After many hours of road labor, I received a call from a friend, who excitedly said,I see your truck being towed by a tank of a truck, and on April 18 2019 at approximately 1600 and after 6 hours of labor the Dr made the delivery, all 19k worth. Thankfully, his Dr skills, and mighty assistant, the big cam 900/mrap/het with Dukemonster SIMPly allowed him to complete the mission.
    My mil-hats off to you Wes


    I got her home, a limp, a tire or two empty, trans and electrical problems, drove her 2 miles to the house. Where she has been under the knife just about everyday. We have made many leeps and bounds getting her just about mission ready. Again without the outstanding help of named and unnamed folks on SS, she would not be where she is today.

    Again, about Reis, she is a 1995M1078A0 WTEC II SS 2.5T truck, With this sites help, she will be a warrior once again, serving me as faithfully as she supported the 3ESC 264CSSB. Reis the Beast has given back as she has cost me. Her lights are lite, her motor runs strong, and boy does she run through the gears.

    Polished and waxed, well, not really,.. This is Reis the Beast, she has had a long journey, in a short time. Her drive to show her pride is evident in her return to mission ready, and a well deserved and honorable TOM

    You've never really done it all until you led the best Squad on the Planet or been at the wheel of an M984A4! In the interest of keeping it M1089 related I'll toss out two pictures of my old one!
