U.S. Army Recruiting Command Sponsors Army Appreciation Day at USAHEC: April 19,2010


U.S. Army Recruiting Command Sponsors Army Appreciation Day at USAHEC
You’ve seen it on television and in magazines.  Now is your chance to see it up close and personal and maybe even take a picture with it. The U.S. Army’s own Orange County Chopper will be at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) on Monday, April 19, 2010 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm as part of a U.S. Army Recruiting Command (USAREC) sponsored Army Appreciation Day. This is a wonderful opportunity to show your appreciation for our American Soldiers, while enjoying some of the best equipment and training devices that support our Soldiers in the field.  The event is free and open to the public.
The USAHEC and the USAREC will have numerous exhibits and interactive tools set-up in the USAHEC parking lot and in Ridgway Hall. These training items include the Soldier’s Rock Wall, the Laser Shot Training System, the LAN system with the Army Game, and the Army Physical Fitness Challenge. You can also talk to currently serving Soldiers and veterans about their service or even get a Dog Tag made while you view the U.S. Army’s Orange County Chopper.
When you’re done outside, come into Ridgway Hall and experience the history of Carlisle Barracks and the U.S. Army War College in the new exhibit, “Carlisle Barracks: Then and Now,” or take a walk on the interactive Army Heritage Trail, our 1-mile tour trail that looks at the history of the U.S. Army through the eyes of its Soldiers.
