Transportation specialists assigned to 59th Quartermaster Company, 68th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 43rd Sustainment Brigade, secures an M47 Patton Tank to a M1070 heavy equipment transporter at Kit Carson Park, Aug. 1, 2012. The transportation specialists moved the 1950s era tank to the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, headquarters building. Although designated as a light infantry unit, “Raider” Brigade soldiers probably used Patton-series tanks during the division’s cold war mission in Germany in the early 1950s, said Steve Ruhnke, curator of the 4th Inf. Div. and Fort Carson Museum.
