Tanker Up

M48 Patton tank

On Saturday, and Sunday of Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 1 and 2 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., The Museum of American Armor will present “Tanker Tactics,” a program that presents in the field a variety of tanks used by American military forces over the decades.

The tanks include a Cold War M48 Patton tank, a WWII Sherman tank, a U.S. Marine tank, a M18 Hellcat tank destroyer as well as halftracks, a British Bren Carrier and other tracked military vehicles.

The exhibit honors GIs who have served in America’s armor divisions.

The program is made possible, in part, through the support of PSEG Long Island, Amtrust Title, Squad Security and Bethpage Federal Credit Union.

The Museum of American Armor, 1303 Round Swamp Rd., Old Bethpage, is inside the grounds of Old Bethpage Village Restoration and is open year round, Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission donations are $13 for adults, $8 for seniors and veterans and children between the ages of 5 and 12.
