Troop A, 237th Cavalry Ohio National Guard crew on a MATS M-48A5. On the turret, left to right, PFC Matt Owens; Sp4 Ken Gregg, loader and gunner; Dan Wolverton, SSgt and Plt Sgt 1st Platoon; and Sp4 Phil Brunner, driver and a Vietnam tank commander. Photo taken at Grayling, Michigan.
Dennis D. Dop (right) was the driver for Lieutenant Colonel (later, Major General) Pete McVey, commander of the 34d Squadron, 7th Cavalry. Dop selected this M151A2 “Mutt” in July 1974 because of the vehicle’s number: “NBC04P”. His wife was pregnant with their first child and he liked the “4P” (“for Papa”).

Dan Wolverton was in Charlie Co. 2/66 Armour, 2nd Armored Division Forward. The M60A1 Rise Passive had smoke grenade launchers. This was the second tank Dan was on with the bumper number “C-14”. The first one was transferred from 1st Platoon to the 2nd and he got this one as a replacement from 2nd platoon. The original C-14 didn’t have smoke launchers. The photo was taken on tank Table 8, at Bergen Hohen Near (Bergen Belsen) Germany in 1981. The DI on the bussel rack is made of plywood with the company letter and vehicle number painted on it.
