Mangano Celebrates the Opening of the County’s new American Armor Museum

On the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano officially opened the new Museum of American Armor on the grounds of Old Bethpage Village Restoration. He was surrounded by more than 20 operational armor vehicles and D-Day veterans.
County Executive Mangano was joined by Congressman Peter King, Museum founder Lawrence Kadish, former New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and The History Channel’s Chief Historian and Vice President Dr. Libby O’Connell.
 The Museum of American Armor is made possible by a public-private partnership that generates new revenue for the recreation village and creates a permanent living classroom for a new generation of Americans to appreciate the battlefield sacrifices made on their behalf.
Gary Lewi introduced County Executive Mangano at the opening by saying: “There is something different about Nassau County government today, Nassau County Government Welcomes New Ideas.”
