Tom, Small world. During the Korean war I spent some time at the Artillery School OCS at Ft. Sill and while waiting for orders I was given the job as Assistant Curator at the Museum. There were 100s of pieces of artillery, ordnance, self propelled guns, like the M12, etc. etc. From the battlefields around the world. Allied ordnance, as well as Jap. Nazi, Italian, Russian ordnance, etc. We had to identify them, build display ports & signs for outside displays and so forth, to organize some order to all the materials. ( Drag races up & down the parade grounds with the little German full tracked prime movers vs. Kubelwagens, etc. ) New hard surfaces and sidewalks relocations required removal of Geronimo's grave monument to a new location about 20 feet away. ( No, we didn't dig him up - he's still there, but not where the monument is ! ) Ed.
