The Army used these vehicles to load supplies onto shore.
This photo from
Boston Duck Tours
shows a Duck on land. Ducks get about four miles to the gallon.
Here's a Boston Duck entering the river.
We signed up for a tour on July 30, 1995, with D.C. Ducks, in Washington, D.C.
Shortly after entering the Potomac River, our Duck got stuck in the muck.
The D.C. police and fire departments were kind enough to rescue us from our position a few feet from National Airport.
Fortunately, we all made it out alive...
