A Topeka West Senior restored a battle tank to earn his Eagle Scout honor.

18-year-old Lee Suggs has been working to restore a “M-60 Main Battle Tank” used from 1960 to 1991 during the Vietnam and Gulf War.

The tank is on permanent display at the American Legion Post 1 in Topeka.

A ceremony was held Monday night to honor Suggs. He has been a Boy Scout since he was seven years old.
