VFW in Many donates tank to Fort Polk Museum

Fort Polk has a new museum piece — a World War II-era Sherman tank.

The Town Talk reports that Veterans of Foreign Wars in Many donated the World War II M4 Sherman tank to the Fort Polk Museum. The tank was retrieved from Many by members of the 46th Engineer Battalion and 88th Brigade Support Battalion on Sept. 12.

"We don't want it to deteriorate. We want it to be a proud (part of history) that people can learn about," said Larry Perser, the VFW post commander in Many.
