Gathering 2017 (XV) Morro Bay, CA

The California Gathering should give those in Western States, who can’t come to the Gatherings in the East,  the chance to attend a Gathering. There may not be any Gun Trucks there, but as always it will be a good one. Kathy and Sgt Willie is working to make this the Best one ever. If anyone know of Guntrucks or military vehicles in California or the West that might want to come let Kathy and Willie know.

Thunder Valley, Bristol, TN Honors Veterans

The Ace of Spades participated in Thunder Valley’s parade of military vehicles; honoring all veterans from all wars.  Not shown in this pic is a WWII jeep that was brought back from overseas after the war, and “hidden” in an Arizona desert until a few years ago, when it was discovered almost in pristine condition.  Also scheduled was the National Fireworks Association product display, with a two hour fireworks show.
