(Sun09) Fifty photos from my visit to the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation.

http://www.mvtf.org/

This is a description of the facility:

The Military Vehicle Technology Foundation oversees one of the largest and most significant collections of historical military vehicles in the world. Our goal is to acquire, restore, and interpret the historical significance of 20th and 21st century military vehicles. Domestic and foreign combat vehicles such as tanks, armored cars, self-propelled artillery, and other technically interesting mobile platforms are the focus of the collection. We maintain an extensive technical library that describes many vehicles down to the part level. Aside from the vehicles, there are towed artillery, antitank, and antiaircraft guns. Military support equipment,inert ordnance, and accessories round out the collection.

The founder of the Foundation, Mr. Jacques Littlefield, started the collection in 1975 with the purchase of an unrestored M3A1 Scout Car. The first two tanks arrived on site in 1983. The collection comprised a total of five armored vehicles by 1988. Over time other military vehicles and associated equipment were acquired from dealers, collectors, or in trade with various museums or government agencies in the United States and abroad. By the middle of the 1990’s the collection included examples from almost all historically significant land battles of the last half-century. The oldest armored military vehicle in the collection is a World War I era M1917 light tank.  

The Foundation was established in 1998 to serve the interests of authors, historians, educators,  the defense industry, veteran groups, model makers, as well as the entertainment industry.

Amazingly, the White House is denying that Obama's "silver spoon" crack had anything to do with Romney. I think that wins the "political lie of the day" award.

Just mind blowing!
