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.(Pfc. Andrew Ingram)
