Scenes at Ft. Knox - pics #5
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Hey all, I just "Popped in" again. A-109E, if you get Ft hood way look me up! TONS of armor, both display and in motor pools that I can take you to. I'll just need some advance warning of your visit as I will have to coordinate with my new job. Speaking of which, I interviewed with a CSM at III Corp and was accepted to work as HHC III Corp G-4, Supply & Service Div NCOIC. I started yesterday and am quite busy already.


Thanks, Jeff; much appreciated! Congrats on the new position!

Shush,

can't let everybody in on this top secret system... Cool

OK, 'fess up you characters, who of you was an extra in "Stripes"? And a trivia question: Where were the Russian camp scenes shot at? Mr. Green

Cheers,

Jens O.

In a "Stripesy" mood today...

The exterior and taxi scenes at the beginning of the movie were shot in Louisville. Basic Training, of course, at Ft. Knox and the Czech scenes were filmed in Eastern Kentucky, but not sure of the exact location. I can find out since I know the state film commission staff that worked on the movie.

Very good Garry,

but no need to check with the former staff, it was the James B. Beam Distilling Co. at 149 Happy Hollow Road, Clermont- an American icon masquerading as a Russian outpost. Smile

Cheers,

Jens O.

Don, the M59 at the "Hospital Parking Lot" - I assume thats the Ireland Army Community Hospital...

BTW, its now the "4th Cavalry Brigade" www.knox.army.mil/part.../index.asp

I love how the Army decides to rename its training support brigades every 4 or 5 years to give them historical brigade designations - and then inevitably switches back to generic divisional brigade designations...

Yeah, and they no longer wear 85th Div (TS) but 1st Army Patches.....

Guess the fashion change with the ACUs facilitated a patch change to 1ST ARMY.

My wife still refers to them as 'pajamas' with velcro

Uhh... 16th Cavalry HQ at Brave Rifles & Old Ironsides? Should also be 2 M60A3s there?

Neil


The two M60A3's are on the other side of the building...

One of the fascinating aspects of this DB (for me, at least) is posting a photo of a vehicle which appears to be just so much scrap steel and then have members provide a lengthy historical sketch on it. Thanks. Smile


You have got to meet Jeff Button if you get down to Texas and Ft. Hood. Let him show you his files on some of his projects from vehicles to aircraft he's taken an "interest" in. Laughing

He pops in here from time-to-time. Tell him I sent ya'.


Hey all, I just "Popped in" again. A-109E, if you get Ft hood way look me up! TONS of armor, both display and in motor pools that I can take you to. I'll just need some advance warning of your visit as I will have to coordinate with my new job. Speaking of which, I interviewed with a CSM at III Corp and was accepted to work as HHC III Corp G-4, Supply & Service Div NCOIC. I started yesterday and am quite busy already.
As far as my research is going, I visited Mr Steven Draper at the 1st CAV museum and he had me on his computer up-dating the historical data and correct serial numbers / USA-Reg numbers for all his M4 Sheramn varients. He was quite pleased and appriciative of the info and pictures I had put together. However I have to give a HUGE thanks to Joe DeMarco. I am now going to start on the M3 / M5's and record their info. Gotta run, I'm on my lunch. I'll check back in soon!!!!


Well, don´t say I did´t tell you so...and when the good sergeant retires, I´ve got a pretty good idea what his hobby or second dicipline is going to be already. Wink
