Call up the Milwaukie VFW and ask them.

Story about a Sherman tank
Posted by Armyguy on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 9:55 PM

  Any one from South Eastern Wisconsin remember a story that appeared in  The Milwaukee Journal about some town in the Northern part of Wi wanting a Sherman  tank for their VFW .

What I remember is that the Army said we have some tanks you want one, well few guys got together went to the base picked out a tank and drove the thing back to the town. They would drive it in parade's for a few year's ,then they parked it in front of the VFW hall and welded the hatch's shut.

This story appeared back when the Journal had the green sheet.  Time line some time in the70's ??

Next time I get a Saturday free going to head to the library and do some digging
