How Did Vietnam-Era Amphibious Vehicles Wind Up on An Ocean County Beach?

Visitors to the northern beach in Island Beach State Park in Ocean County on Tuesday were stunned to find a pair of unoccupied amphibious vehicles just sitting on the beach. The vehicles were reportedly owned and used by the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.

How did they get there?

It appears that both of the amphibious vehicles were private purchased and are currently on their way to Virginia, where the buyer plans to use the vehicles in construction projects. However, the vehicles ran into mechanical trouble during their trip, and so they were dragged onto and parked on the beach, where they will undergo repairs before resuming their journey down south.

It is unknown how long the vehicles will remain on the beach.
