My sister actually had her wedding reception in the same officers club room that my parents did! Oh and my parents rode a tank from the base chapel to the officers club for their reception.
While it is ironic that I live in MD now, we were never stationed at APG. Dad started out with his testing at Ft. Knox - stationed there from '59-'62 - he did hot weather testing during that time in Yuma, AZ. He spent a month or two out there during those years each summer. Then, they packed up the tank and us and we spent 3 years ('62-'65) at Ft. Greeley, Alaska at the Arctic Test Center. Great experiences for us.
