Here I am, just at the outer edge of Cavalry Parade Field:
|"I remember this place!"|
It was great to be back on post. We stopped at a lot of the memorials and statues on Cav Parade Field, like the Global War on Terrorism one we showed you on Memorial Day.

Here's Dave looking down a brick path:
I thought he had found the Yellow Brick Road at first, but he told me it was red bricks, so it was a no-go.
Let's go check out some of the vintage military equipment and vehicles by the Cavalry Museum!

That's me posing by an M4 Sherman Tank - that's what was in yesterday's Wordless Wednesday post! Isn't it cool?!? The US Army and Marines used a lot of these guys in WWII -- as did our Allies!

Moving right along, Dave and I also checked out an M113 Armored Personnel Carrier.

I think that could come in handy getting from Point A to Point B!
Here's one last shot for today - Dave and me by an M36 Tank Destroyer!
|Dave and me by the "Jackson" M36|
So ... it's like an anti-tank tank!
Tomorrow, we'll share more pix of our cool adventure at Fort Riley. I hope you liked coming along with us!
