    The Army has opened a new exhibit that will be displayed through 31 July. It is called “Before They Were Airborne: The 82d Division in World War I. Come see this unique exhibit. On display are CPT Henry Lee Jewett Williams’ uniform, the first 82d soldier to be killed in action, June 9, 1918. In addition, SGT Alvin York’s uniform will be on display. These items are on loan from the 82d War Memorial Museum on Fort Bragg. This is the first time these uniforms have been available for the public to view.
