Some photos of Ft. Meade's Museum PART II
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.

Thanks for splitting the thread, Fled...sorry, been a little pre-occupied with the fires here in SoCal.

Please see "announcement" on pic posting guidelines. We LOVE to have pic threads like this, but need to limit the number in a single thread for those on dial-up. Opening second threads for additional pics is acceptable and welcomed. Wink

Doug, Can you give us a 'Spot Report' from San Diego?

My very good friend JG300-Ascout has a thread on this in the "Officer's Club". Update for this morning is that I, at least, can finally get to work. Camp Pendleton is burning and now instead of I-15 being closed, it's the I-5 from at least 56 north. Still zero percent containment. About 50,000 people of the 350,000 HOMES that had to be evacuated are expected to return today. I was able to take in two evacuees at our house (least I could do...never know when I might become one myself). At least five deaths, from 1,000-1,500 homes destroyed and this will likely increase. It's early yet...depends on the winds today. It's only 0610 here right now. We have a skeleton crew at work so I might be pretty busy...

This makes the Cedar Fire of '03 shrink to insignifcance in scale...you have no idea. Go to wikipedia for "California fires" for maps or www.10news.com for maps of the evac areas....they are huge.

I'm lucky, I live precisely between the two largest fires.

Uuhh - that seems like a warped view of 'luck' somehow being between the two may be luckier than being in the fires but not as good as being away from the fires

Is there a locale or community name that represents your area (so we know when to go into high gear worrying)

You know we are all thinking about you and concerned

Let's just say I live in a coastal community precisely between the Harris and Witch Creek fire evacuation zones. Between is lucky...it's "west of" that's not so good.

Doug, My hat's off to you in being able to photograph the entire Liberty tank in one shot within the Ft Meade room!

They also have several WWI and WWII artillery pieces in storage, safe from the elements.

The Ft Meade Storage is a small building located on grounds. No armor, but filled with artillery and a jeep.

If you notice the circled area in the photo, you can see the artillery's portions which had been filled with concrete, making them susceptible to climatic expansion and humidity while exhibited outdoors. Great pieces, but unfortunately they're stuck in storage -Ray
