"Tanker Weekend at the Museum of American Armor has become a much anticipated Labor Day tradition for all of Long Island and the New York metropolitan area. Scores of historic tanks and armor vehicles take to the field in a unique and powerful display of America’s military might some 75 years ago.
Rare vehicles—including the amphibious LVT used by the Marines in the Pacific, and a massive tank transporter, “The Dragon Wagon”—roll from the museum’s complex, where they are joined by a host of other operational icons from World War II. These include enemy armor such as a Tiger replica equipped to confront the Sherman and Stuart tanks, the Hellcat tank destroyer, along with artillery, support vehicles, and British armor.
This once-a-year event presents the only opportunity in the New York Tri-state area that allows close access to the armor that saved democracy and ensured our freedoms. More importantly, it provides visitors with a far better appreciation of the role our “Citizen Soldiers” have played over generations, answering the call, defending our nation, and protecting our future."
