Sounds like a lot of fun and sure do wish I lived closer. I know I had the time of my life a few years ago at the Patton Museum when they hosted their last big weekend with displays and battle reenactments. I had never been to one before so it was a bit overwhelming ... especially with the low flyover of that Mustang. With the 3 Shermans and that Mustang I carried a smile on my face all the way home.

Hope this one enjoys some decent weather!

I’ve never been to the Patton Museum before. I here it’s a great place to visit. Do they still have battle reenactment shows there?

Nope, that was the last one. They have since moved most of the armor away and now it's not the same anymore.

Used to be my escape at least twice a summer.
