Merry X-Mas tank
This is a tank the guys decorated and wrote all over "Merry Christmas"
I want to salute my cousin Craig Garcia [far left] who is on his second of deployment to Iraq. He served his first two years ago and suffered slight trauma when his convoy was put to a stop when his vehicle was blown up after running over an I.E.D. He is back serving and defending our country!!
Editor's note: The tank in the picture is out of commission and became a prop used by the soldiers to display their Christmas cheer.
