      Mr. Nevala,

      There are a lot of pictures of Colorado on Tarawa. There is a very good
      website about C Company, 1st Tanks, which describes all of the known named
      tanks. Colorado happens to be a celebrity as she was one of the few that
      survived the battle. Here is the link for the company:

      I do not think the tank survived the war. There is one tank still on Tarawa,
      I think it is Cobra.
