Long Description:
I used to play on this self propelled 105 Howitzer when I was a kid!

Back then I lived in Union City and this hunk of iron was in front of the National Guard on Reelfoot Ave. I went by the National Guard on our way duck hunting I noticed the tank was gone! While I was eating at Joe's (GC1EK13) I over heard my Uncle say that they moved it to the VFW! Woo Hoo! Now you got a Waymark to visit! So go get it!

Additional info on this tank is needed!!!
I visited this tank to hide the cache on it. I noted that it had not been waymarked when I got home and that they want to mark them even if all of the info was not yet gathered. Please help me to gather more info and pictures to complete this listing. I will update the info as I get it. Thanks!
