10th Armored Division Plaque and Sherman Tank Turrett (Bastogne)

Second World War
10th Armored Division plaque Bastogne

On each of the main roads leading into Bastogne, a Sherman tank turret symbolically marks the permimeter of the American forces during the siege.  They were recovered from the battlefields around Bastogne after the war.  The visitor should remember that each of these tank turrets also represents the crew of a Sherman tank who lost their lives during the battle.  This one commemorates the men of the 10th Armored Division.
