Military Snapshot - Treadless in Vietnam

On the morning of June 23, 1968, crewmen from A-35 were on the move on Highway 533 when the tank struck a land mine in the road. In this photo, Staff Sgt. Elwood Houston and Bob Schlagel examine mine damage to A-35, including a blown-off right treat and warped hull.
