Did you ask him about Angela?Got a chance to talk to Sergeant Titus today on the phone. He told me he was assigned the position of convoy leader and trainer because he was 1 of 5 out of 200 people in his unit that had experience driving civilian trucks. He picked the truck he did because it had the V8 in it. He said I was very lucky that I had “his” truck, because most of the others had severe abuse, due to inexperienced drivers.
He also said the trailers they pulled didn’t hold up to the task very well. They were in such a hurry to build them (90 days to build 48 trailers), that a lot of corners were cut, and some of the trailers they had to finish making operational after they got to Saudi Arabia. Also, due to the way the tank sat heavy to the front of the trailer, it overloaded the front trailer axle. They were experiencing problems with bent axles after just a few trips.
He told me that all the army guys got the Macks, the reserve units and even some civilian contractors got whatever else they could find.Looks like they were scrapping together anything they could get. Look at all the Mercedes trucks in the background. That's awesome that you have the direct history for your truck.
