Inscription.
To the loving memory of those men
and women who gave their lives in all
past wars, and to all veterans who served
our great country, we dedicate this tank
as a symbol of your sacrifices.

This M-60 forty five ton Army tank was donated
by the United States Army to the American Legion
Post #64; through the efforts of past commanders
John McCabe and Gordon House. We give sincere
appreciation to the following benefactors for
contributing $100.00 or more to cover the cost
of relocation from Anniston, Alabama.
