Famous WW2 Quote"Goddam it, you'll never get the Purple Heart hiding in a foxhole! Follow me!"
Captain Henry P. Jim Crowe, Guadalcanal, 13 Jan 1943

I am almost certain that the light tank being used by General Patton during his pioneer armored maneuvers in Tennessee was an M2 light tank variant of some type, but I cannot identify it. It had a SINGLE turret with TWO machine guns. This seems to be the same tank he was using when Time Magazine photographed him for their July 7, 1941 issue. I can't get any response from the Patton Museum in Fort Knox concerning Patton's command tank in Manchester, TN in 1941, which really is frustrating. I hope you can help! Thanks!
