There was one photo taken, but I did not get it.

A WW II Battle of the Bulge First Sergeant gave me his 1945 MB a couple of years ago.

He now lives at a local retirement home. They were having a breakfast for the veterans living there. He asked me to bring the jeep.

Of course, I did. What else could I do?

The director of the facility saw it sitting out front and asked to go for a ride. Again, what else could I do? We went for a ride after one of the staff members took our picture.



Oh, did I forget to mention that it was 19 degrees outside! :shock:

Did not get pics this year, temp was low 30's and very windy, it was first time I ever buttoned up my M-38A1 and took advantage of the heater during a parade.
