George Washington was the best President in history. He set the standards that the other presidents need to follow. Not only was he a great leader for a great country, he lead the army for said country. He was one of Americas Founding Fathers. He signed the Declaration of Independence. He knew the risk of signing the Declaration as well of everyone who sign it. That's why he is one of my favorite presidents.

The full designation of the tank was the PanzerKampfWagen II or Armoured Fighting Vehicle II. This was abbreviated to Pk.Kpfw II, PzKw II or Panzer II. It also received the Ordnance Department designation Sd Kfz 121 and the codename LaS 100.
The Panzer II was similar in layout to the earlier Panzer I. Like all German tanks the engine was at the rear, with the drive wheels at the front. The turret was offset slightly to the left and carried one 20mm cannon and one 7.92mm machine gun. The 20mm gun could fire high explosive or armour piercing rounds, so the Panzer II did have a limited ability to fight other tanks.
One more from Ostler Peak in the Uinta Mountain Range. This one was taken well after the sun went down. Clouds make the peak appear to be a brooding volcano. What you're seeing is a 13 second exposure, so the clouds are moving for 13 seconds over the top of the peak, and that's a near full moon above and to the left of the peak, covered by smoke from the wildfires raging across the state at the time.
