Yuval Neria, an Israeli war veteran who now lives in New York, on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016, was reunited on Long Island with a tank like the one he rode in 43 years ago during the 1973 Yom Kippur war. The tank, a 45-ton Israeli Magach 3, is on display at the Museum of American Armor at Old Bethpage Village Restoration. Neria, who was awarded the Israeli Medal of Valor for bravery in combat, was able to drive the tank, which was restored by the museum. (Credit: Newsday / Chuck Fadely)
