This web page is dedicated to our good friend, retired armored vehicle engineer Bill Criswell who passed away a few years ago. A courageous and wise voice of reason against the wheeled truck madness infecting the Army and DoD, the picture above was his favorite of 11 th Combat Engineers leading the way into Baghdad using M113 Gavins with gunshields.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, it is universally accepted that at this significant time and on this historic day each year, we all stop what we are doing - momentarily - to remember those brave men and women who gave - and continue to give - so much during times of war and conflict.
