Larc V LARC V - a part of the above formation with Robby Robertson from Illinois as the operator. (Nice guy; he took really good care of his LARC. He was a sprint car racer before coming into the service.)

Larc V LARC V, hull number 769, the "Can Leaky".

This was our LARC for maintenance platoon; we put her back together with parts we begged, borrowed, stole (oops! did I say that?) ....I meant to say, borrow for an indefinite period of time (ha ha).

There's a story in this, which I'll write about at another time!

(They ended up with a LARC to MUCH)
(Book keepers will never understand that)

The one with the smile and the nice teeth is the LARC V, #750, "Super-Lizard". The parasite next to it is that grubby lizard-mechanic! (Yours truly!)

Raul Galvan is the creator of the great artwork.
(I hope he's doing artwork on low-riders back home.)
