Always love going to you Fort Knox. The Patton museum is always fun and is always a great look at past wars and past situations. He has to get better before you go onto base which tastes like less than a minute.

I've never seen an open tank there but there's been quite a lot of work there in the last year or so. There is still a lot to look at and plenty of static displays to see.
