Here’s a final picture of my pap at Aberdeen Proving Ground, where he completed his basic training after being drafted into the Army of the United States in February 1946.

Looking closely at the side, it looks like someone named this tank “Martha Frances.”

Another cute comment from Grammie appears on the back of this photograph: “Look who’s trying to hold the tank up.”
