World War II Gyrene: The 75mm Pack Howitzer

The 75mm Pack Howitzer was designed in 1927 with the intention that it would be broken down into seven components, mounted onto seven mule and carried into any terrain, reassembled and used (thus the name "pack" Howitzer); see video below, filmed at Ft. Still, Oklahoma.

These memorials are also at this location:
