Battle Worn ATVs Shown Off ASO Museum

Published in the October 2018 Issue October 2018 Feature

It’s no secret that ATVs and side-by-sides are being used by various branches of the military in combat situations.

But it was still a nice surprise to see a display at the Airborne & Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville, NC, dedicated to the use of ATVs in a couple of different wars.

One display reads, in part, “ATVs climbed the Afgan hills, but higher up in the hills, sure-footed pack animals were the main method for moving supplies.”

Another reads, “All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) were used extensively in the foothills of Afghanistan to pursue enemy troops. Lashed to pallets, ATVs were parachuted from C-130 aircraft to waiting A Teams.”

The entire museum, dedicated to airborne and special operations troops, is fascinating and worth a visit.

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum is owned and operated by the United States Army and is located at 100 Bragg Boulevard, Fayetteville, NC.
