Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that The Museum of American Armor will mark Veterans Day Weekend by unveiling its rare amphibious assault tank used by U.S. Marines during World War II to liberate Japanese held islands across the Pacific. On Saturday, November 12th, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., the Landing Vehicle Tank (LVT) will be joined in the field by a Stuart tank and other vehicles used by the Marines during its hard won campaigns during World War II.

County Executive Mangano stated, “The Museum of American Armor and I invite residents, veterans, families and friends to this unique event as we honor our hometown heroes and mark Veterans Day. From the unveiling of this rare amphibious assault tank used by U.S. Marines during World War II to liberate Japanese, to the iconic Sherman tank and jeeps, weapons carriers and half-tracks, The Museum of American Armor features the most compelling educational tools we have to recount the story of our GIs' courage, valor and sacrifice.”

Other armor on display will be a Cold War M48 Patton tank, a Sherman tank, the equally rare Dragon Wagon recovery vehicle as halftracks and other military vehicles. The program is made possible, in part, through the support of Bethpage Federal Credit Union and Stop & Shop Supermarkets.
