On Sunday, Dec. 16, the Museum of American Armor will honor those Americans who fought during the Battle of the Bulge with a daylong exhibit from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This will include a candlelight prayer vigil to pay tribute to the 19,000 Americans who lost their lives during that savage World War II battle.
Surrounded by the tanks and armor similar to those that defended our forces, clergy will conduct a period service including a prayer General George Patton asked to be written beseeching the Lord for weather that would allow him to speed reinforcements to the front.
For those interested in attending to honor these fallen heroes, the event will take place on Sunday, Dec. 16, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Museum of American Armor, 1303 Round Swamp Road at the Old Bethpage Village Restoration
Those in attendance and presiding over the ceremony will include historians and clergy, and there will be operational WW II armor.
