Post subject: Scenes around Ft. Knox - pics #6 (last batch)

Here's the last batch of photos of Ft. Knox scenes from the end of April 2007. (It's okay to breathe a sigh of relief; I won't get my feelings hurt. <grin>)

Located about a block east of Skidgel Hall off Phantom Division Road we find the T-29.

Just%20to%20the%20north%20of%20the%20T-29%20is%20located%20its%20sister,%20the%20T-30. Go%20Armor!%20Go%20Army!%20Spirited%20water%20towers%20on%20the%20west%20side%20of%20Dixie%20Street%20south%20of%20the%20Stithton%20Circle. The%20north%20face%20of%20Ireland%20Army%20Hospital.%20In%201967%20the%20eye%20clinic%20here%20dug%20a%20tiny%20fragment%20of%20shell%20casing%20brass%20out%20of%20my%20left%20eye%20which%20had%20lodged%20there.%20This%20was%20a%20result%20of%20standing%20behind%20a%20General%20Electric%20GAU-2B/A%20%207.62mm%20'mini-gun'%20mounted%20on%20the%20left%20pylon%20of%20an%20XM-21%20Weapons%20Sub-system%20of%20a%20Bell%20UH-1C%20gunship%20during%20a%20live%20firing%20ground%20exercise%20on%20one%20of%20the%20ranges.%20They%20did%20a%20nice%20job. The%20hospital's%20helipad%20looking%20south.%20Seems%20like%20an%20international%20airport%20to%20me%20because%20of%20its%20size%20and%20night%20&%20approach%20lighting. Nobody%20needs%20to%20be%20told%20what%20this%20is,%20do%20they?%20%20:wink:%20 Taken%20in%20a%20parking%20lot%20on%20the%20SW%20corner%20of%20the%20intersection%20of%20Eisenhower%20Avenue%20and%20Old%20Ironsides%20Avenue. The%20south%20gate%20of%20Ft.%20Knox%20on%20Bullion%20Boulevard%20leading%20to%20US%2031W%20and%20the%20nearby%20town%20of%20Radcliff.

That's all, Gentlemen. Thanks for looking and thanks for all of your erudite comments!

Thanks, Bob...

I bet you also recall that T29 being in Stithton Circle back in the old days...I know I do.

We used to boresight our tanks on Ireland A. Hosp. windows with the crosshair method...it was visible from most points around base, and offered good right angles for this purpose.
