Subject: [CPEO-MEF] NATURAL RESOURCES: South Carolina National Guard creates "offshore reef using old armored vehicles"
Soldiers create offshore reef using old armored vehicles

The South Carolina National Guard has found a good use for old M60 tanks and M113 armored personnel carriers.

Every year, the Guard and the state Department of Natural Resources drop old armored vehicles into the ocean to form artificial reefs that in turn draw sea life, fishermen, scuba divers and tourists to South Carolina.

"There's not another project like it," said 1st Lt. Jason Dunnagan, the Innovative Readiness Training Project coordinator for the South Carolina Guard. "It's being part of something that's going to last longer than you digging a hole on Fort Jackson and at the end of it saying 'task done.'"
