"5 — Sheridan Namesake.jpg","None given"
"6 — Bye-Bye Sheridan.jpg","For all of you who wondered what happened to all of the Sheridans (and you know who you are), you can rest easy knowing that they were dumped into the Atlantic Ocean by the New Jersey National Guard to form an artificial reef."
"7 — Sheridan Firing Shillelagh Missile.jpg","None given"
"8 — Tank Gunnery.jpg","For those of you who went through tank gunnery in Germany in the dead of winter I'm sure you can relate to this picture."
"9 — Blind Faith, Jr..jpg","This was my Sheridan when I was with B Troop, 1st Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam.   We had just come off a two-week, maintenance standdown after the Cambodian Incursion, so that's why it's freshly painted and clean-looking."
"10 — Stalking Rhino Patch.jpg","The Stalking Rhino was the name given to the Sheridan by its manufacturer.   These patches were issued to each crewman to be worn on the upper left pocket of the jungle fatigue shirt."
