"Oh my god, we have to stop back at the Harley dealership on the way back."
"Why, because of the blood drive."
"No they have a Sturmgeschütz, you must have missed it because of the cammo."
My wife then pulled over to turn around.
"Thanks, but you don't have to do it now."
"It may not be there when we get back."
"It's a World War II tank, they don't move much!"
I am glad she did, and it was an impressive piece to look out. I have found out today it is actually a replica built for the "Band of Brothers" mini series. It was really good though, down to the Zimmerit anti-magnetic coating.

This STG-III is owed by the 9th Reenactment Society which reenacts the 9th SS "Hohenstaufen" Division.
They generously provided the transport and setup in an effort to gather attention for a blood drive being run at the Harley Davidson Dealership. Kudos to all involved.
