US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

Military Vehicle Show


Over the weekend of 23-24 August 2003, the Sea Cadets of NCBC Division assisted the organizers of the Third Land & Air Show, an exposition of military heritage vehicles sponsored by the Rhode Island Military Vehicle Collectors Club and the Quonset Air Museum. The show included dozens of miltary vehicles of nearly every type imaginable - from vintage WWII Jeeps to armored personnel carriers to the famous "deuce and a half" transport truck. Also included were vehicles from armed services around the world - a big hit were the variations of the Mercedes-Benz Unimogs from Off Road Imports, local to the Rhode Island/Southeast New England region. Reenactors of both US forces and German WWII mechanized divisions also turned out on this beautiful New England weekend. The Sea Cadets are grateful for the support offered by the Quonset Air Museum and Eric de Rochambeau (7th generation descendant of Jean-Baptiste-Donatien de Vimeur, Count de Rochambeau, Advisor to General Washington and Lieutenant-General of the French Army in America during the Revolution), organizer of this singular event.
