F-105 at Amvets, Circleville, Ohio.  This one is just off a highway I've been down hundreds of times.  Just became aware of it recently.  I would guess it has been there 5-10 years.

My family and I toured the USS Texas several years ago. Quite an eye opener.

She had some bad leaks and was listing/ sinking and close a few times in the last couple of years. It's great to see them putting money into keeping this great piece of history afloat !

Nice!

I stumbled on a tank in WV the other day, Captain Canada.  Hang on and I'll post it.

Looking for a museum in Princeton, WV, I found this- next to another museum.  A veteran's museum, worth a visit.  "Those Who Served War Museum", right downtown.  Seems to be closed for winter (but the janitor let me in.)

M47?

Ah, thanks.  Not a tank guy.  No markings on it.  Beautifully kept, though.
