    Our Dragoon

    As a V-100 driver in Nam in 1970 at the age of 19 we thought they had a lots of room. A couple of years ago as a 63 year old got to see Rory V down in Texas. We question him about the size of the V. It sure seemed like it was a lot smaller than we remember. But, it seems as we were a lot...

    Steel Soldiers MV of the YEAR - 2014 VOTE HERE!

    Guys You don't know the amount of lives that Gun Trucks saved in Nam. As a Convoy MP driver of a V-100 when a fire fight started it was great to know the gun trucks were on our side. When they came rolling up the bad guys would cut and run.

    Proud American Guntruck History

    Guys As an MP driver of a V-100 that ran convoys in Nam. It was great to know that when things went south you had gun trucks in the convoy. Our Vs and the gun trucks stood our ground time and time again. If one of us ran low on ammo we could count on each other for help. When things...
