Despite clouds and a threat of storms, it was a beautiful morning at Resthaven on this Memorial Day. Again we had 5 vehicles and 10 members participating in the display. We had wonderful speakers and a flyover of the Confederate planes, with great music.

Afterward we enjoyed going to Sonic once again, for lunch, and left at 2:15 p.m. What a great time and fellowship.

VA Display

There was a wonderful showing of military equipment and vehicles, we were spread out over a good area which made the people move around. All enjoyed the free band, dancing groups, drinks and food. It was a nice day not too warm and a good breeze most of the time. All in all, for the most part, it was a good time.

1961 Dodge, M37B1

My name is Kevin McIntyre. My neighbor is trying to sell his 1961 Dodge 3/4 ton 4×4, personnel cargo carrier, M37B1. It has the 6 cylinder in line motor and has been restored to 100% with military issue parts. If you know anyone that is interested please pass the info along. I have some pictures I could email to them, thanks for your help.
