Members of the Fincastle Chapter attended the 121st Virginia Division Convention in Lynchburg, October 6-9, 2016. The convention theme was “The Heart of Virginia–Confederate Families.” At the Historical Evening event, one Cross of Military Service and three National Defense Medals were awarded to military personnel who served in the Vietnam Conflict and the Global War on Terror. Col. Greg Eanes, US Air Force (Ret) presented a fitting program recounting Jubal Early’s role in the Battle of Lynchburg. Over 160 were in attendance, including 135  members.

We thank the hostess chapters from the Third District for their hospitality.
