    The Sherman hit the mine, the mine didn't hit the tank as it says in the description...

    update on bennie bill woodall, his wife told me his tank hit a land mine he and the crew were unable to escape, and over a long period of time burned to death...the remains of he and the crew were returned back to the US and buried together somewhere in Nebraska. if anyone has information on the date the tank hit the land mine, or location please let me know. thanks. contact Cooper at POBox 37 Everson WA 98247
