National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed today, September 17th (commemorated the third Friday in September). It honors those who were prisoners of war (POWs) and those who are still missing in action (MIA). It is most associated with those who were POWs during the Vietnam War.

Get ready to ride back in time at the 2021 Matt Light Celebrity Shoot-Out with World War II Tank Rides in partnership with the American Heritage Museum!

Load up and move out aboard history as you roar away in the passenger seat of either of these iconic pieces of heavy iron from 1944 operated by the American Heritage Museum. Both the legendary M4 Sherman medium tank and the nimble M24 Chaffee light tank will be available for rides during the Celebrity Shoot-Out on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 and spaces are limited, so book online today!

Each 10-minute ride through the trails at Addieville East Farm requires a donation of $795.00* for three (3) riders aboard the M24 Chaffee or $795.00* for two (2) riders aboard the M4 Sherman. A significant portion of the donations for each of these experiences is tax-deductible!

All proceeds from your tank ride support the missions of both the Light Foundation and the American Heritage Museum of Hudson, MA to help educate and inspire young people through unique experiences to ignite their purpose, passion, and motivation to succeed.
