I have been in the modeling hobby off and on since my youth. I build mostly 1/35 scale. However I work in other scales for aircraft, ships and the occasional civilian car kit. I also kit bash and scratch-build when the mood strikes. I mainly model WWI and WWII figures, armor, vehic...

You're welcome Frank. Glad that you like the pictures. I believe the howitzer is what is left of a German 1913 Krupp Howitzer. But I could be wrong. The shield on the one at Camp Ripley is a little different. Here is a picture for reference. And here is a link to a page. 15 cm schwere Feldhaubitze 13 Thanks, Randy

Nice article. When I was in the 4th ID at Ft Carson part of our area of responsibility was the Minn Reserve units. The regular army all had partnerships around the country with the Reserves and the National Guard. So I was at Ripley 3 times as a training adviser and twice attending the winter warfare school they put on there. COLD ! I grew up in the mountains of Penna but I never knew true cold before Minn in January. I got off the C130 on the airfield in the middle of the base and that wind froze the entire breathing system inside me like I just got hit in the chest by a fastball. Good training though and we learned military style cross country and downhill skiing. The night we camped out in arctic tents the mean temp went down to about 20 below zero. Now that is cold my friends! In the summer Ripley is right at the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi and loaded with fish and more turtles than I thought possible. Great part of this great country.
