US Army Ordnance Museum at Aberdeen Proving Ground

A familiar name to all students of armor, the Proving Grounds at Aberdeen are home to the US Army Ordnance Museum. They have many unique armor subjects and are in the process of renovating their vehicles, many of which have been parked outside for years. The museum is raising funds for the renovation and housing of their vehicles. Please visit their website at US Army Ordnance Museum
