A retired U.S Army Patton tank on display in front of a local VFW Post. Wheeling Illinois USA. August 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo this past Saturday morning, in far northwest suburban Wheeling Illinois.
This nicely painted and maintained U.S Army model Patton tank, is on display in front of a local Veterans of Foreign Wars lodge post on Mc Henry Road.
I was about to stand next to it and have a friend of mine take My photo...but then I witnessed several WASPS flying in and around the tank treads and underbody.
Sorry. I have no intention of ever becoming part of a "Sting Operation". I was just happy to snap this photo from a safe distance.
