Aberdeen is the home of the U.S. Army’s Ordnance Center, School at Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), and the Army Research Lab. Located just outside of Baltimore, MD. This is an interesting location for any military history buff. The place has over 200 vehicles on 25 acres of park and as an engineer who was always fascinated by tanks as a kid this was a great place to visit and finally see the real things.
