Well, since we don’t deal with tanks only but all sort of military vehicles, I think we should change it to ‘Second Career’, ‘Military (after) Life’, ‘In Civilian Clothes’ or something similar... Any suggestions?

Second career (vehicles) ?
to signal that it is about vehicles and avoid confusion with figures/humans

"Re-Used"

Maybe "Keep on rolling" or "Still rolling ...."?

OK, consider it done

Maybe you could consider editing the first lines in your first post in this thread so that it mentions more than tanks ?

Re: safari trucks in Jackson NJ. Every year Great Adventure advertises for driver's especially former military with experience with 5 ton trucks who like to talk about animals.

The father was definitely British, I’m not sure about the mother. Apparently a local breed...
