Yorktown Heights, NY – A couple of artillery pieces

I took most of the pictures with the Pentax ME Super while walking around Yorktown Heights, NY as I waited for my wife to finish with her dental appointment. Shortly after I left the car I came across, in quick succession an American Legion Post and a Veterans of Foreign Wars post.

Outside each of them was a small artillery piece. I have no idea what they are. I’ll have to consult with my friend, a former artillery lieutenant-colonel. Although these are probably long before his time he’s usually pretty good at “ferreting out” the required information.
