Response to Huh?

It is a traffic light.. of sorts... used on LSTs during loading and unloading.. let the tanks know when it was time to 'GO' When they had the tank deck packed with tanks and troops and other goods, it was essential that everyone know when it was 'safe' to proceed out and down the ramp. They guys got it hooked up and working... and it's great! A nice piece of trivia for tour guides to show visitors!
