Silicon Valley tank collection heading east
Jerry Rivard, a mechanic with the Collings Foundation, sits inside a Saladin tank from the United Kingdom at the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation in Portola Valley, Calif., Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013. Administrators of an extensive historic military vehicle collection housed in the hills above the Silicon Valley planned to mark Veteranís Day by signing over their tanks, missile launchers, self-propelled guns and historic firearms to a Massachusetts-based nonprofit that preserves and displays the machines that helped build the world and helped keep it free. The tank pictured will not be one of the tanks moved to Massachusetts. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)
