Tanks, Tanks, Tanks! Hear the rumble of historic tanks, vehicles, and the boom of artillery at the Museum of the American G.I.’s “History in Motion” on November 13 & 14. Feel the ground shake as the tanks, vehicles, and artillery take to the arena in a fantastic display of historic military might! At the Museum of the American G.I., you will see one of the finest collections of pristinely restored vehicles in the South!
This action-packed weekend has fun activities for the entire family! There will be vehicle and weapons demonstrations throughout the day. In between the demonstrations, you can see historic military vehicles up close and learn what it takes to crew them or take in a WWII Tank.
