Tank school in Feb- 1939

The Fort Benning Tank School taught tank repair in Buildings 67, 69, 71 from 1932 – 38.

This was relevant to the Infantry School because Infantry Officer classes included tank maneuvers.  Chassis repair was taught in Bldg 67 and Engine repair was taught in Bldg 69.  Tank School HQ was Bldg. 71.  In the middle was an open grassy area with the incinerator in the middle.  The large windows were needed for light.
