This M42 was received in about the mid 2000’s in a shipment following a US Government repossession of loaned vehicles from the Ropkey Armour Museum, along with an M47 Patton tank, an M114 carrier and a towed 8 inch howitzer. (Source: D. Moriarty). They were seen in the Boatwright Maintenance Facility early in July 2008, but by 18 July they had been moved to Richardson Motor Pool (source: Geoff Walden).
On 1 March 2010 this M42 was part of the first convoy of vehicles to transfer from Fort Knox to Fort Benning (source: D. Moriarty).
