I don’t know about you but I’m really stoked to see that Judas Priest cover band.
But the real attraction on Springfield St in Feeding Hills (a territory in Agawam, MA), is the tank and Freedom Eagle sculpture located in front of “The Tank” American Legion Post 185. The Tank is an eatery/event venue servicing veterans.
The tank is a M-60 tank monument dedicated to all veterans (past, present and future)
Donated in 2005, the Freedom Eagle shows an eagle soaring through the air, fish clutched tightly in his or her grip
There is also a memorial from the town of Agawam in remembrance of the people who served during World War I.
Although it is a small park there is a lot to take in and it certainly makes you proud and grateful.
The area is also a common spot for dog walkers. Across the street, we saw a group of four big dogs being walked. This is a group of Bernese Mountain Dogs. The dogs go to the local senior center and visit Alzheimer’s patients as therapy dogs.
From left to right: Roma, Tony and Lena (one of the other dogs was a bit camera shy).
