Military vehicle enthusiasts, listen up!  Government Liquidation, the exclusive sales channel for Defense Department surplus, will be auctioning a collection of antique vehicles on behalf of the Jack Braton Tomlin Trust.

The vehicles, used exclusively by the U.S. Military both domestically and internationally, range from cargo trucks, utility trucks, fire trucks, tractor trucks and dump trucks. All of them start and run.

All were procured over the years by Jack Tomlin, a U.S. Marine, who upon his retirement, began collecting WWII military paraphernalia and military vehicles and transporting them to his hometown of Tooele, Utah, until he passed away in 2010.
