Pair of tanks.

Pair of Army Tanks

Two old U.S. Army tanks are just off of Main Street in downtown Lucedale. The tanks are parked in front of the town's war memorial. It would be somewhat disconcerting to live in the house across the street, as the tanks' guns are pointed right at the front door. Just west of the Presidential back scratching post. Manila Street is right across Main Street from Lucedale City Hall.
