MO and IL Tanks
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: MO and IL Tanks

While in St Louis, MO we went on a number of tank runs to see and document what we could. In addition to Ft Leonard Wood and the Alton, IL museum, we traveled to 13 places (VFWs, parks, American Legion, etc).

Posting alphabetically - mostly in MO but a couple from IL.

Enjoy!

Starting with:
ALTON, IL
