Remember When: A Community review for June 29, 2022

Tonganoxie received a special gift last Wednesday. A M68-3 tank arrived from Fort Riley. The tank, which weighs 167,000 pounds and cost $700,000 when it was made, traveled 360 miles to its final resting spot in Tonganoxie VFW Park. VFW members are pictured in front of the tank: Bo Himpel, Larry Meadows, Lloyd Dehoff, Jim Watson, Butch Crawford, Earl Parson, Harold Putthoff, Harold Denholm and Bob Klinkenberg.
