Photobucket Photobucket The total number of U.S. Army Tankers (enlisted men with MOS 11E10, 11E20, 11E40, and Officers with MOS 1203) killed in the Republic of Vietnam is 725. To put this in perspective it must be understood that only 2,720 men served as tankers in Vietnam from 1966 to 1971. This represents a loss rate of 27%, the highest loss-rate for any MOS in any branch during the war.
