    FORT INDIANTOWN GAP, Pa-The installation was the site of the Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce Military Appreciation Breakfast yesterday.

    The annual event was well attended by members of the business community, elected officials, community leaders and Guard members.

    “The doors of the installation are always open to our community partners,” said Lt. Col. Lane Marshall, commander of the installation. “We’re proud to be able to assist with this event.”
