(OLD BETHPAGE, N.Y.) – Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) commemorated the heroes of World War II during a special event at the Museum of American Armor on Saturday, June 10.
Held as part of the Museum’s annual World War II weekend, this tribute to America’s “Greatest Generation” and their courageous defense of freedom around the world included living historians portraying world leaders like President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and a Sherman tank crew. They were paired with the Museum’s extensive collection of historic armaments to create an immersive and evocative experience for visitors.
“We will forever owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women whose valor and determination were instrumental in rescuing the world from the evil clutches of the Nazis during World War II,” Legislator Drucker said. “The Museum of American Armor’s event was a fitting celebration that placed their sacrifices in the forefront of all of our minds, and I thank Gary Lewi and everyone at the Museum for their tireless efforts to educate the public through immersive programs like their World War II weekend.”
