Time to honor American soldiers with museum

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

To the Editor:

For over 236 years, we Americans have owed our freedoms to the men and women of the United States Army.

Now, at long last, the American soldier will be honored with the National Museum of the U.S. Army near our Nation's Capital.

Many members of our community have proudly worn the uniform of the U.S. Army. As a founding sponsor of the museum, I ask that you help make everyone aware of this long overdue national project by running a story on plans to build and open this important new museum on June 14, 2015, the Army's 240th birthday.

For more information, please contact the Army Historical Foundation by calling 703-562-4173 or visiting www.armyhistory.org. Thank you.
