FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. - The 2009 Joint Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Regimental Week continues to draw crowds, even as it draws to a close this week.

National Defense Industrial Association exhibits remain open behind Baker Theater from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., today. The exhibits are open to the public and will showcase "the multiple cutting-edge CBRN capabilities for our nation," said Col. Leslie Smith, U.S. Army CBRN School commandant.
The Hall of Fame and Distinguished Member of the Corps ceremony is scheduled at Baker Theater from 4 to 5 p.m., today. Individuals with significant contributions to the CBRN Corps will be recognized.
On Friday, the culmination of Joint CBRN Regimental week, the CBRN Corps will conduct their Regimental Run and host the Green Dragon Ball.
