A listener to The Hagmann & Hagmann Report observed an interesting, if not disconcerting event in a small town that borders the Smoky Mountains. A German soldier transport truck, complete with the Balkenkreuz der Deutschen Streitkräfte emblem (a World War II insignia of the German armed forces) on the driver’s door, being driven into the Smoky Mountains. According to this listener, the driver appeared of Russian origin and seemed extremely nervous at the gaze of this listener. Thinking quickly, the listener snapped several pictures, some of which are presented here.
Although the pictures do not show the driver’s attire, he appeared to be wearing an “odd shaped helmet – not a U.S. issued helmet” while operating the vehicle. Once observing the camera, perhaps, the driver hastened away toward the Smoky Mountains.
