Veterans Memorial Park, Rock Springs Wyoming

This is a M60 tank in Rock Springs' Veterans Memorial Park.

There's more to the park than this tank, but unfortunately I did not have the time to stop and really view things.  Hence the side of the road photograph.  It is sort of peculiar, I'll note, to see this correctly painted green tank sitting in such a deserty setting.  M60s were used in the Middle East by Israel, and the sand paint scheme used by the IDF would almost look more appropriate here, even though it would of course not be appropriate for the M60 which, as far as I know, was never painted in a sand paint scheme.

 I was back in this area the other day, so I updated the photos of this memorial, although I framed one of the photos very poorly.   This park, while an all wars memorial park, is focused on the Persian Gulf War, which I had not previously noted.
