Everybody knows that Fort Knox is where the gold is stored, but I never knew it was also a military base and a town.
First we did a drive by of the vault (they won't let you in)
Which was on. . .
Then we went to the Patton Museum in the town of Fort Knox - more tanks and armored vehicles than you can imagine.
Oh look, it's John C. on his cross country trip!
Even more tanks.
I was fascinated by this piece of the Berlin Wall. This is the East Berlin side. . .
And this is the West.
They also had lots of Patton memorabilia like his staff car.
This is actually the car he was riding in when he was involved in an accident which ultimately took his life.
There was a lot of information on his life and quotes from letters he wrote. I thought this was funny.
This big guy was a prototype that was never built because the war ended.
For those interested in visiting this extensive collection of armored vehicles, you better hurry. We were told it was all being moved to Fort Benning, GA. However the Patton exhibit will remain in Fort Knox.
