Aberdeen 2009

 Every spring the East Coast has a Military Vehicle meet in the Aberdeen Maryland area sponsored by the WAC/B&G MVT Chapter of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association (MVPA). Historically the meet was always held on the U.S. Army Aberdeen proving ground but for the last couple of years since 911 the MVPA has been forced to locate it's meet else where and the last couple of years the event has been held at Ripken Stadium. I do miss the trail rides the Army let us have on the Proving Grounds but the parking at the stadium OL is really nice when it rains------ no mud!

    The next Aberdeen meet is scheduled for May 20,21st and 22 of this year(2010). See( http://www.militaryvehicleshow.com/). It's a great meet and is the perfect union between military radio and military vehicle collectors. Hope to see you there.
