Having been a Marine, General Patton is one of the few Army officers we looked up to. In fact, after reading about him, many of us wondered why he didn’t choose the Corps. He certainly would have fit in. Aside from being a Marine, I’m...More

I've never seen an open tank there but there's been quite a lot of work there in the last year or so. There is still a lot to look at and plenty of static displays to see.
