Gas Station Space Capsule

I have driven past this space capsule numerous times in the past, but have never stopped to take a photo of it. This time I made it a point to do just that. The weathered capsule has USAF markings on it, and within the USAF logo is the wording, "United States Air Force Recruiting Service."
