The public got the chance to see just how powerful an Army M1 A1 tank is Saturday afternoon at the West Pittston Armory on Susquehanna Avenue. As part of the D Company, 1st Battalion, 109th Infantry Armory open house, the tank crushed an automobile. It crushed it like a paper cup.
The auto was donated by Duryea Auto.
Those who attended had the opportunity to speak with soldiers and to examine weapons and other Army equipment.
