New York Army National Guard soldiers have been refurbishing and repainting a World War II-era M4A3 Sherman tank destined for display at the New York State Military Museum. The museum is responsible for the historical exhibits and artifacts at New York's 41 Army National Guard armories. The mission of the museum and research center is to preserve, interpret and disseminate the story, history and records of New York State's military forces and veterans. The collection is divided into the museum and the library/archives holdings. The museum has more than 10,000 artifacts ranging from the Revolutionary War to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The names of more than 37,000 New Yorkers who gave their lives during World War II can also be searched on the Museum's website.
