The tank on top is a Patton, I think. So late 1950's to early 1960's? Not an M60 or M1 Abrams. Yeah, and if you look thjrough it to the bottom, is there a naked lady inside?

Given that there is no rank inscribed on it, and the gentle nature of the image at the bottom, this was most likely for a dependent wife. It was common to present such stains at the end of a successful tour, and the thinking was that the spouse deserved one as well.

Greetings Will,

 

Here is a picture of a M26 Pershing's crew camouflaging their tank during an M26's Crew Course. Note the "7A TTC" bumper markings. This image is from circa 1951.
