"In view of the fact that Helen G. Hill, T/5, ASN A805726, is leaving this station for overseas duty, I wish to take advantage of the occasion to commend her most highly on her most excellent and efficient performance of duties as a member of the Security and Intelligence Division, Post Headquarters, Fort Benning, Georgia. Corporal Hill has displayed unusual ability and initiative in handling matters of importance. She is well qualified to handle classified military correspondence and matters requiring maximum protection from the standpoint of security. I recommend Corporal Hill very highly for any assignment requiring efficient performance as a confidential secretary, tact and ability to follow things through to a conclusion."


-Director, Security and Intelligence Division

Fort Benning, Georgia




"Centuries ago words were written to be a call and a spur to the faithful servants of Truth and Justice: 'Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation...'"

                                                                                                               -Winston Churchill, 19 May 1940

The exhibit is finally starting to take a physical form! The curatorial staff has been extremely busy with their research, script writing, and graphic layout process of the exhibit build. We are in the fun stage of getting to see their efforts come to life. We are hopeful the exhibit will be completed by early January. Guess they'd better get busy finishing up those walls!
