This M24 was acquired by the museum in March 1978. It was on display in front of the “Leaders Club” building (also known as the “Brick Mess” and “Officers’ Club”) beside Chaffee Avenue for many years until at least 1998. It is believed to be the same vehicle that has been on display at Chaffee Gate on Bullion Boulevard since it was rebuilt in 2001-2004.
