The Marine Corps Vietnam Tankers Historical Foundation is looking for bloggers to write about Marine Corps Vietnam War era Tankers and Ontos Crewmen. While the Foundation may not actively support, or agree with the opinions expressed by the bloggers, we do support the free sharing of observations, ideas, sea stories, and opinions. You do not need to be a member of the Foundation to participate. The Foundation created a blog site in order to provide a forum to discuss USMC Tanks, Ontos, and related subjects, closely adhering to our mission “To Write the History of Marine Tanks and Ontos in the Vietnam War”. Although Bloggers might initiate these discussions with their blog, the continued interaction between bloggers, is vital. It is the Foundation's intention to attract people knowledgeable about and interested in the Marine Corps Tanks and Ontos action in Vietnam, to share their thoughts here.  Click here to visit the Foundation's blog site You will note there is a number of categories already selected. You need not limit your particpation to those categories.

 Evolution of Marine Tanks  a work in progress.
