Craig here. I ran this post on my blog earlier today, but figure the audience over here would better appreciate the smell of diesel exhaust and clanking of treads:
The American Wartime Museum holds it’s annual Open House event on August 20 and 21 this year. The event features vintage military vehicles, reenactors, and other displays. The event is free, but you have to register in advance. The event is held outside Nokesville, Virginia.
Were else will you see stuff like a British tank named after that Hallmark holiday in February:
Or a real deal Commie tank from back in the days when there was a Berlin wall!
Or a working “Uncle Billy” M4 Sherman tank:
Or go to elaborate lengths to light a cigar?
So if you are in Northern Virginia around that time, make plans to stop in.
