Talked today for the first time with Ron who was driving the day they lost Larry Dahl. Great conversation and I got to fill in some gaps on the timeline that I have going.
one thing you will learn if you ever attempt to build one and want to be accurate. You will quickly find that no truck stayed the same. Each crew would be assigned and often do something different, it could be as small as painted details or weapons type or location changes. Some even went as far as name changes.
Many changes were for Brutus in its history but the name and it's script was never one of them.
And THAT is what makes the Gun Trucks so special within the worldwide MV motor pool:
- They saw action and carry the story of the combatants who worked them during hostilities.
How great would it be to have the story highlights from all personnel who had connections with any and all MV's being preserved anywhere?. Peacetime, or War; it doesn't matter. The stories of each of us are important. And what's important about stories is that you pass them on.
And that's part of why deucedriver's project here is so important. You go, Brother.
