Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:

This TRV was a 5th Armored Division memorial before being acquired by the museum and transferred from Grafenwöhr, Germany, in July 1975. The side door has been factory-welded shut and all boom and support mounts, and rear deck stowage, have been removed. Some of its parts were used in the restoration of the museum’s M3 medium tank. It is currently missing its dummy turret gun (though this was previously present).
