Your View: Support efforts to build Army museum

For over 236 years, we Americans have owed our freedoms to the men and women of the U.S. Army. Now, at long last, the American soldier will be honored with the National Museum of the U.S. Army near our nation’s capitol.

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 … our community (be) aware of this long overdue national project … to build and open this important new museum on June 14, 2015, the Army’s 240th birthday.
