Normally I’d do a WWII poster today, but since we were at the tank show I decided to do something a bit different today.
At breakfast yesterday we had a great discussion on America’s ability to step up and do what needed to be done.
Singer made 1911s, Saginaw made M-1s, and Cadillac made tanks!
As Prof Hale said, it wasn’t about wanting to do the work, it was NEEDING to do it. Need a furnace? Here, go look at these guys. Got it? Okay, build one and we’ll send somebody over with the build to specs. First articles are due in 30 days.
AND THEY DID IT!
Nothing about we need to get approval, we don’t have the people, yada, yada. They just DID it…
And they didn’t change designators every time they made a change either…
Original M-4 Sherman tank… Cast armor
Later M-4 Sherman tank… Welded
Next week I’ll get back on ‘track’ so to speak…
