Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:

This M60A1 (a RISE Passive model) served as the Battalion Commander’s tank of 1st Tank Battalion during Operation Desert Storm. It has been at Fort Knox since its return in 1992, at the USMC Detachment (Building 2372). During 2010 it was moved to the Richardson Motor Pool so that USMC volunteers could do work and repairs on the power pack and generator. (Source: D. Moriarty). It has a rebuild data plate that indicates it was rebuilt at MCLB Albany, Georgia, in October 1983.
