Team-Yankee US dice set - why the lion?


Recommended Posts

So I bought this dice set and somebody asked me: "Why did BF choose that symbol (the silver lion) to be on the US dice?

I did some research and here is what I think:

1. It is the Symbol of Harold Coyle's unit in Germany


2. He served with 3rd Battalion, 68th Armored Regiment:

Tank platoon leader, C/3-68 armor, Mannheim, Germany, 1975-76
tank battalion S-3, AIR 3-68 armor, Mannheim, Germany, 1976-78
tank company commander, A Co., 3BN 68th armor, Mannheim, Germany, 1978-79




3. The unit insignia of the 68th Armor is a silver lion on a blue background
