Winner? Most garish M60 tank prize?
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.

There were no Cajuns involved in the painting of that 60. Maybe some "Redbones", but no Cajuns! Wonder what mushroom they ate? Rolling Eyes

Well I can attest no one from my side did it either,

Besides, they are all transplants from Arkansas (except those who married into the family locally) and are just south of the State line into Louisiana.

We demand some respect for Dontos (Well at least a little) His Great Grandpappy was a New Market Cadet at VMI. (Everyone removes their hat and stands at attention in respect). That makes him a desendent of the only Corps of Cadets to fight in a battle AND WIN so lets not question his Southern Heritage too much

No problem Jeff. I've got no ill will against Indiana. (Even though my ex-wife is from the 'Hoosier' State)

I am sorry for initiating this WAY OFF TOPIC discussion. Rolling Eyes

Reminds me of a story Dads always telling anyone who will listen. Back when he first started the web site he used to put JED right in the middle of any images he had. He went to a model exhibition once and there he found a rather nice model of a Chieftain with JED (same font & colour) emblazoned across the lower glacis plate. When he asked the model-maker the reason for this he was told it was the way they named their vehicles in that unit...
