REDBALL MILITARY TRANSPORT
What is REDBALL?
REDBALL MILITARY TRANSPORT is an organization of individuals (historians, vehicle preservationists and collectors) interested in collecting, restoring, displaying and enjoying antique historic military transport equipment, vehicles and mobile weaponry transport. .This is done in respect and recognition of our armed services men and women, past and present, who have defended our freedom and in tribute to the military transport that played a critical role in that defense.
REDBALL MILITARY TRANSPORT was established in 1992 with an initial membership of about 11 military vehicle enthusiasts who first met in Mountainhome, Pennsylvania.
REDBALL MILITARY TRANSPORT takes its name from the famous WWII truck supply route, the Red Ball Express, that originated in Normandy in the fall of 1944. The REDBALL continually re-supplied allied troops advancing swiftly across France toward the Siegfried Line in Germany.
This trucking supply mission ran round-the-clock for about 90 days. During that period the Red Ball Express delivered over 412,000 tons of much needed supplies to the allied troops that ultimately overwhelmed the enemy.
REDBALL MILITARY TRANSPORT participates in parades, veteranís events, historic displays, re-enactments and local civic events.
REDBALL MILITARY TRANSPORT hosts 2 major Club events each year.
