Why I decided to join armor (I'm still deployed so I don't have all of my pictures from my early years so these will have to suffice.).
I was actually considering going infantry branch but during ROTC Advance Camp over at Ft. Riley, I saw the M-60's doing tank gunnery. I decided again tanks were cool (I just didn't know how much maintenace was involved. Egad I spent a lot of time in the motor pool but that's a later story).
My first tank was an M48A5 in South Korea.
