On 15 April 1941, the 3rd Armored Division was born. It was unstoppable by the Germans. The only thing that prevented it from taking Berlin was orders from above to halt, allowing the Soviets to enter Berlin.
It faced down the Red Hordes of the Soviet Army for decades of the Cold War, and picked a 2nd nickname for its most famous Soldier: the Elvis Presley Division.
From 24 February 1991 to 1 March 1991, during Desert Storm, the Division destroyed hundreds of Iraqi tanks and captured 2400 Iraqi POW's. On 17 January 1992, the heaviest Armored Division in the world, rolled up its colors in Germany. On 17 October 1992, after successfully defeating multiple divisions of Saddam's Republican Guard (his best) in Desert Storm, it rolled up its colors for the last time in Frankfurt, Germany.
