There's a Punk in your Armor

Vile Bill posts some great pics from his tour of the Aberdeen Proving Grounds. That brought back some high school memories! I had a great class, Man and War, taught by a very animated military history buff (thank you, Mr. Frakes!). Our class trips to West Point and the APG were highlights of my teenage years.

I still have pics of classmates climbing all over the tanks and my friends and I having a picnic lunch inside a self-propelled gun. I don't think we were supposed to be doing that, but kids will be kids.

Update: Well, I just did a quick Google on Mr. Frakes and learned that he's been teaching up in Gilbert did I know it was him? I found a few references to historical model dioramas that were the trademark of his tenure at my high school. I wonder if he's still around....

    Thanks for the great comment and mention on your own site! I'm flattered! I particularly liked the "picnic lunch" anecdote!!
