Chief Thomas K. Yallup, of Toppenish, Washington, chief of the Yakima Indian Tribal Council, visits his son, Cpl. Bill Yallup, who was in training with an army armored unit at the Yakima Firing Center. Cpl. Yallup's "iron horse," an M-48 tank, is one of several roaming the plains where once-proud Indian warriors rode fleet-footed steeds.


  1. We should have done more to bring Native Americans into the fighting forces. Those that served did it with great distinction.

  2. If the Indians had M-48's at Wounded Knee, the Army would have had its hands full.
