Arrow The Fury

Brian De Palma..
As the Allies make their final push into Germany, Don "Wardaddy" Collier, a battle-hardened U.S. Army staff sergeant in the 66th Armored Regiment, 2nd Armored Division, commands an M4 Sherman "Easy Eight" tank named Fury and its 5-man, all-veteran crew...The 66th Armor Regiment is the oldest armored unit in the United States Army, tracing its lineage to the beginning of the Tank Corps in February 1918 under the command of Col. George S. Patton; it was first activated in the Regular Army as the 66th Infantry Regiment (Light Tanks)..The 1st and 2nd Provisional Brigades of the United States Tank Corps would eventually go on to provide the original cadre for what would become the 66th Armored Regiment in World War II..Cabalistic influences on his theories can be evidenced by his use of the "Law of Threes" throughout his work..

Lurking Tiger..

In December 1942,the regiment participated in the amphibious invasion of French Morocco in North Africa and led the division's entry into Casablanca.. The regiment participated in the invasion of Sicily and through fierce fighting earned the unit 6 battle streamers during the war..Following the war, elements of the 66th and other units of the 2nd Armored Division were selected to occupy the American sector of Berlin and serve as the first American troops to enter the fallen German capital..During the Korean War, an offspring of the 66th fought under the designation "6th Tank Battalion"..Fuller died in Falmouth, Cornwall in 1966..Fullers have a variety of uses beyond bladesmithing..Fullers are also used for many other shaping processes in blacksmithing, from making hinges and latches to plow parts and horseshoes... you do something to his arm, Peter?. I killed it. With a machine gun..Good thing the Lord God Jehovah built in so many spare parts..Here's a Bible verse I think about sometimes...
