....Speaking of the Ontos....
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.

OOPs....Actually it was May 27th.... (good catch Shawn..) The Ontos 'filming' had been done several hours before these were taken...






Friday Night ( tomorrow !! ) is the first airing. Additional airings for this episode are planned.

Episode: 97 - Mail Call
Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey is on location at Fort Knox Kentucky to visit the United States Armor Center and check out our armored arsenal. We go along on a Recon Officer training course with Special Ops Army scouts; and then, Gunny goes for a flight on an Apache Attack Helicopter. View a profile of George S. Patton, hear the story of George S. Patton's ivory-handled revolver and see other historic relics from the Patton museum. Gunny gets to drive and fire the cannon of the only working vintage Vietnam-era M40 Ontos Tank shredder known as the Road Runner. Then we'll take a trip to the assembly plant to see the tank built from the ground up.

Friday, March 30 08:00 PM ; Saturday, March 31 12:00 AM ; Saturday, March 31; 04:00 PM

Or check the website:
Mail Call: Episode 97

Regards,
Don

I haven't seen 'hide nor hair' of the aforementioned 'Mr Kibby', in these parts, since 'the gathering' last May.

Hey,....anyone up for a 2nd 'Annual' mini-reunion for the Memorial Day weekend(May 26/27)...???

This years 'Life of the Soldier' Program is really shaping up. Can't really talk about it right now, but stay tuned...

Meester Kibbey regrets that he cannot try to pull this off two consecutive years in a row as it coincides with his wedding anniversary and he has his survival to consider....however, in future years.....who knows. Depends on if he gets an invite or not. Wink

(he also notes that his esposa was a real trooper and accompanied him on the last trip, so he dare not complain even a little bit, and considers himself a dang lucky hombre....)
