Vet museum on I5
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.

For anyone in traveling in Washington state. There is a nice little museum in Chehalis right off I5. Chehalis is about halfway between Seatle and Portland. I believe they have one WWII light tank, a lot of weapons and unforms and misc stuf. Their web site is:
www.veteransmuseum.org

*** edit for link correction. Thanks ***

From the G104 group, they apparently have a former logging Sherman. No mention on G103...

As a disclaimer I guess I should point out that I'm a member and the G41M on display was my dads (guess it's mine now). They even have a pretty good library.

It was a very wet winter day when I visited (Chehalis was where I went to school (1-12)) and that area was not open. I believe it's got a roof but rain can blow in. Since I now live in SE Michigan its a bit of a trip to drop by. I just checked out their web page and they didn't have any more info their but you might drop them a line. They did have an email contact button and the people I met were real friendly. They also have a number of other vehicles and a flag from one of the US CV's I think they have or are planning on having a helicopter as well.

Hmmm...

Lee, can you give me a better vector? I'll be driving that way on the 25th or so. If it's not too far off of I5, I might be able to drop in and get some piccies for y'all.

You can see it from I5. If you are coming from the south it's the 2nd Chehalis exit (13th street is the first one). It's either the second or third coming from the North.It's just West of the freeway. The exit drops you off to the North of the museum and you have to turn South on what U think is riverside. No more than 5 minutes drive once you are off the freeway.
Here is a Google map URL:
maps.google.com/maps?f...1&om=1
Hope that works.

Address is:100 SW Veterans Way Chehalis, WA

Here's their page with visitor info:
www.veteransmuseum.org/visit.htm

888 edit cause I left an h out of Chehalis ***

Hi Lee, all,

Thanks. I'll see if I can sneak in there on my way past.
