Marching for a museum


Army veterans Curtis Drafton, left, and David Broadie walk through Hamlet Wednesday on their way from Fort Bragg to Charlotte to raise awareness for the new N.C. Military Veterans Hall of Fame there. The two are part of a three-man contingent walking 125 miles in five days as part of Operation Bootstrap, for which the men — clad in Army physical training uniforms — carry U.S. and North Carolina flags, and carry rucksacks. The museum is intended to promote the stories of North Carolina veterans, those the museum says should be young people’s real heroes. More information on the new Hall of Fame is available at www.ncmvhof.org.
