A Visit to Aberdeen Proving Ground Tank Museum back in 2012
Background: I’m moving stuff off of Photobucket.com, because of their intrusive watermarks and recent increase in popup ads and decline in service in general. It’s a frustrating process because they will ping you about having too many photographs for a free account daily but won’t give you an easy way to archive your account off by folder. So you may be seeing a few blasts from the past re-hosted. Today’s post was originally made in 2012, I think. I had gone to Aberdeen Proving Ground for work reasons. I knew the Army was winding down its open air armor museum and moving the pieces to Fort Lee, Va, slowly as funding permitted. What I didn’t know was how many pieces they still had left. Thanks to the patience of my work colleague who sat in the car drumming his fingers (he was retired artillery, this wasn’t floating his boat) as I took, literally ten minutes running around taking pictures and trying to take it all in. The rain helped move me along. Anyway, here’s my 2012 trip to the Open Air Armor museum at Aberdeen, reposted. Meta information: I’m deleting the older post from 2012, it is now redundant.
