Thank you for posting these Fred. Back in those days all I did for a camera was buy the disposable ones. So, the pictures arenít very good. There is a really nice indoor museum there but all of the pictures I took inside were too dark or when I used the flash they were just a fuzzy blur. So all of those ended up in the garbage. Which is the pits because I went through several cameras and took a ton of pictures and would have a lot more to share. But it is a cool place with a ton of exhibits to walk around and enjoy and it is definitely worth the visit. Thank you, Randy

You're welcome Frank. Glad that you like the pictures. I believe the howitzer is what is left of a German 1913 Krupp Howitzer. But I could be wrong. The shield on the one at Camp Ripley is a little different. Here is a picture for reference. And here is a link to a page. 15 cm schwere Feldhaubitze 13 Thanks, Randy

You're welcome Pat. I've been alright I guess. Lots of ups and downs, but I guess that's life. Hope that you and the family are all well. Thanks, Randy
