Important U.S. Army leaders in Roanoke

Posted: Updated:

Two important leaders from the U.S. army are addressing our local chapter tonight.

The head of the Army Historical Foundation and retired Sergeant Major of the Army will be discussing the past and future of the U.S. Army.

They'll also be rallying for support to build a museum to recognize veterans from Southwest Virginia.

"It's important now today to tell the soldiers story and that's why the museum is so important, not only for the army today, but for future generations," Sgt. Ken Preston, retired U.S. Army Major.

"It will be exciting, innovation, interactive and memorable experience for everyone who goes there," General Creighton W. Abrams, head of Army Historical Foundation.

So far, foundation has raised $74 million dollars for the museum, but still needs a hundred million more.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. Blue Ridge Beverage in Salem.
