I had a very lucky visit to Ft Benning this week. I went to see the new Infantry Museum and while there I asked one of the volunteer workers if she had any information about when the tank collection that had been moved from Ft Knox would be available to the public. She initially got a little annoyed and said that they get asked that every day and that it was all in a storage area on the base and not open to the public. The Infantry Museum is outside the gate. But she was very nice and said if I was interested I could ask at the restoration director’s office, which was across the lobby. A very nice lady let me in and said that the director was over at the shop and called him on the phone. When she hung up she said, “He said send him over.” She then gave me directions to the area and said to make sure to call her if I had any trouble. When I got over there, it turns out that not only had the Ft Knox collection been moved there but also almost all of the tanks from Aberdeen Proving Grounds. The artillery from Aberdeen went to Ft Sill. I met Len and Frank who are the two directors of restoration, who couldn’t have been nicer. They spoke to me briefly before getting back to work. They were very busy and had about six soldiers working for them doing both restoration work and general grunt work of moving around and arranging a couple of hundred tanks out in the yard They then turned me lose and I was on my own to roam around. Absolutely great visit and I can’t thank them enough. It might take me a while to post all the pictures.
