Father and Son
Other cairopd123 writes:
Last year I purchased a 1953 M38A1.  My sole purpose for buying the jeep was a way of spending time with
my son, who is now 15.  We decided to do a frame-off restoration and restore the jeep as close
to original as we can. 

I have learned a lot about jeeps over the past year, we have completely disassembled
the jeep and starting the rebuild.  Money is hard to come by and I have to buy a few parts at a time, but more important I have learned a lot about my son. 

We work on it together and it amazes me the things he figures out by himself when I get frustrated with something.  My dad
was a great father, but he was not interested in mechanical things. 

There is no way I can describe the joy I feel having my son by my side, me teaching him,
and him teaching me.  If anyone needs a reason to buy a project to work on, take my word for it, this is the best
money I have ever spent.  Remember, there is no way to turn back the clock on life!

Bailey Bridges

When U.S. Combat Engineers arrived in England during World War Two, they were introduced to the Bailey Bridge System.  The bridge components were invented in 1939 by Sir Donald Bailey, an obscure civil servant in the British War Office.  As an engineering hobby, Bailey experimented with model bridges and their assembly.  He hit upon the idea of using pre-engineered panels that could be combined in such a way to produce a 40 ton weight limit bridge (40 tons being the heaviest tank in the allied arsenal).
