The Armed Forces Museum & Archives of the Carolinas have a new set of board members. The group voted last month at its regular meeting at the Mint Hill Town Hall. The museum and archive will be constructed next to the North Carolina Korean War Veterans Memorial at the Park on Fairview.

The officers are William R. Dixon, President; Jeff Pitney, Vice President; Kathleen A. Wilsbach, Secretary; Ron Paschal, Treasurer; and Gary Aljets, Committee Coordinator. Two new members were also voted in: Andrew Hagopian and Ben Kubie.
