Dept. of Veteran Affairs mobile unit to be at museum

CHINA GROVE ó The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will have its mobile unit and personnel on site Saturday as part of the ěVeterans Day and Pearl Harbor Memoriesî gathering at the Price of Freedom Museum, located at the old Patterson School, 2470 Weaver Road.
The event, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., will have many military vehicles and equipment on display, military and firearms demonstrations, vendors and the museum itself ó filled with all types of uniforms and memorabilia.
Bobby Mault, co-founder of the museum, says the Corriher-Lipe Middle School chorus will perform and be in charge of the flag-raising.
Mault also stressed the importance of having the VA mobile unit on site to answer veteransí questions and concerns. Veterans often shy away from going to the VA Medical Center, and this mobile unit helps in bridging the gap and bringing access to resources closer.
The museum is host to more than 1,500 fifth-grade students each school year, and it keeps growing through the items former military personnel and/or their families donate.
Mault said volunteers continue making progress in transforming each room of the old school house into new exhibit areas. Most recently, Food Lion office personnel from Salisbury created the Navy Room.
Except for these kinds of special events, the Price of Freedom Museum is open from 3-5 p.m. Sundays and by appointment.
