PULASKI COUNTY, MISSOURI—Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) Expert Member Robert G. Stanton today joined in the festivities officially dedicating SSG Samuel A. Countee Hall at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. The rehabilitation of the building, one of only two remaining World War II-era black officers clubs in the nation, was completed earlier this year.

The restoration of the building was the result of a successful Section 106 historic preservation process that involved the Army, Missouri State Historic Preservation Officer, National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the ACHP. Through this collaboration, a compatible long-term use was found for the building.
