Tank Commander


While not as glorious as, say, a Marine Sniper or a member of SEAL Team Six, Tank Commanders definitely rank pretty high in the glory department. Every major battle conducted in modern warfare involves armored vehicles.

Let's run down the Glory checklist, shall we?

Massive firepower at your fingers? Check.

Leading a platoon into battle? Check.

The front line of defense for U.S. ground troops? Check.

Ability to almost single-handedly destroy massive amounts of enemy troops in a few seconds? Check.

Saving the free world. Check.

Glorious job? Double check.
