Wouldn't want to be down range.

Yes I have, had it called in almost on top of our heads near the Tigris river outside of Baghdad.

While the idea was exhilarating, when the first shell landed and made my body turn to jello. Kept my head down , kissed my ass goodbye and thought that was the end.

After fire for effect was over...my nuts hurt and I had to take a shit.

Literally almost on top of us...

No thanks.

We drove through a Republican Guards equivalent Artillery Barrage During the First Gulf War. It blew all of our TA-50 right off the tanks.

Yeah, it was a night engagement and the Republican Guards had buried all of their Tanks and Artillery and built themselves a network of trenches.

We smashed through them and Mech / Infantry cleaned up the trenches behind us. It was crazy, not much burns in the desert however anything that could did that night from horizon to horizon.

Our unit 1/37 Armor is mentioned in Armor Magazine 1992 May-June and the engagements are mentioned here (page 13)

not everything is mentioned yet it's pretty accurate.
