TOPEKA, KAN. -- The Kansas National Guard Museum hosted a symposium on current threats at home and abroad Saturday.

About 60 local residents attended the free presentation from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and enjoyed chili, cinnamon rolls and conversation after the talks.

The event at 6700 S.W. Topeka Blvd. included a presentation about the Army's work in Afghanistan, peace-keeping in Kosovo, and a final program called "Economic, Military and Technological Threats."

Museum President BG Ed Gerhardt said educating the public about the military's efforts is one of the museum's priorities.
