    Tanks shooting north

    USMC used their M60 Tanks with 90mm guns to shoot northward. They had a longer range than any howitzer the Corps had at the time. To get maximum range they elevated the guns to the max by driving up ramps for maximum elevation. I timed it just right and caught the muzzle blast from one of the tanks. The other tank had just fired a split second before. I think the photo was taken at Camp J.J. Carroll but I am not 100% sure.
    The only Woodstock I saw in 1969 was on my M14
