Field Trip Friday - Army Heritage Trail

Several weeks ago we met friends at the Army Heritage Trail in Carlisle, PA.  We have visited this site a few times going to their encampments and reenactments.  But this wasn't a special day, other than the friends we spent our time with.

This site is so unique.  You walk a level gravel path touring sites that represent different periods of war in which the US was involved.  We were at a WWI barracks; a WWII bunker, a civil war log-hut,  helicopters and tanks from lots of different time periods, and other structures built and used throughout history.  You walk the path and then explore these buildings and equipment as you walk.  There were lots of things for the boys to walk into, or climb on.  There was even an obstacle course for all the boys to try out.  It's a great way for boys to burn-off steam and learn a bit about military history.  And we all know that most boys enjoy a war.

Here are a few pics from our trip.  If you want to see more, friend me on Facebook, I've got an album!
