Last week, the local PBS affiliate, KTEH, visited the MVTF to film a special show for Veteran's Day. For this show, the Panther and the M551 Sheridan were brought outside. The Sheridan was driven around with the show's host riding in it. While not driven, the Panther was displayed in the museum courtyard. Besides the Panther and Sheridan, the M4A1 Sherman and Kettenkrad were also featured in the filming. The episode is due to air in the San Francisco Bay Area on Wed, 10NOV10 @ 7pm. Here's a link to the show's blog: "This is US" MVTF episode

During the past 6-8 weeks, I've managed to obtain some new additions for my reference library, including 3 books from Osprey, a new Squadron Walk Around, the latest Allied-Axis and a large hard cover.
First up is Spanish Civil War Tanks is the latest New Vanguard title from Steven Zaloga. It provides a good background on armored vehicles and their operations during the Spanish Civil War. I think it's a good place to start for anyone interested in this conflict. I purchased this book at Amazon.
