"This will be a great opportunity for Silver Bluff High School to work with Fort Gordon and the 442nd to benefit our students and community."

    To commemorate the event, an official signing will be held on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at 4 p.m. in the Media Center of Silver Bluff High School, 64 DeSoto Drive in Aiken.
