    The National World War II Museum ***New Pics Added***

    The National World War II Museum (formerly known as the D-Day Museum) is right in my backyard AND I'm a member so tickets are pretty inexpensive. Even so I just don't get there as often as I'd like to. I had a minor role (light gauge metal framing shop drawings) in the development of the John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion and have been to the site several times this year, but I never seemed to find the time to go in and enjoy the museum.

    This weekend I had the pleasure of linking up with some former SWCC brothers and had the pleasure of showing them around New Orleans and the National WWII Museum. I only had my Samsung Infuse with me, but it seems to me that with my limited photography skills I wouldn't have gotten better pictures regardless what camera I had. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pictures and are inspired to travel to New Orleans to, among other things, visit this national treasure and honor the greatest generation.































    I'll post more as I get them uploaded.

    Indeed! Thanks for sharing!

    The halftrack, IIRC the Internationals had the rolled edge front fenders like the one pictured, and the one made by White had flat fenders with no rolled/curved edging. Sure hope I remembered that correctly. International and White were the only two manufacturers. The roller on the front was used to scale a wall. Be that a concrete "step" or a steep ditch wall. I do not remember how high the obstacle had to be to defeat its purpose.

    During the filming of A Bridge To Far, the 82nd Abn did the jump sequences from the C-47's. Would have been fun to be there for that one. Of course, they used modern parachutes .
    Nothing expresses Liberty more than, the report of a rifle shot fired in the defense of Freedom.

    I've been to New Orleans many times but have only visited the museum once when it was under the old name. Thanks for sharing pics, it brings back memories!
