The 101st Airborne Division will play host to a top ranking official this Friday.
Retired General David Petraeus, the current director of the Central Intelligence Agency and former commander of the 101st, is expected to attend the retirement of Command Sergeant Major Marvin Hill.

Following the retirement ceremony, 101st Airborne Division Commanding General, Major General James C. McConville and distinguished guests will head to the Division Parade Field to inspect troops during the Division Review Friday morning.
