Landon was wearing his great grandfather's Army Cap and both Marvin and Landon had photo buttons with a picture of Papa who was a WW2 Veteran. He was a member of the Old Hickory Unit and he saw action France and the Battle of the Bulge. Landon is very interested in WW2 so this was a great learning opportunity for him.
What little boy would not love to sit on the gunners turret?
Landon said it was very hot in the bunk room.
50 calibre machine gun.
There were lots of people there with re enactment units and they were a wealth of information on all aspects of the boat and the weapons. This Tank Ship could hold 20 tanks!! Amazing.
Some helicopters from Viet Nam were there as well.
Landon said several people asked him about his cap and his button.
Soutvenir Tee Shirts....and they brought me a magnet for Grimmwood.
It was a fun day for grandfather and grandson. I know Landon will always remember his day with Grandpa.
