__________________________ CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Division of Culture
and History (WVDCH) announces the launch of Blue Star Museums, a collaboration
among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department
of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission
to the nation’s active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial
Day through Labor Day. The program provides families an opportunity to enjoy
the nation's cultural heritage and learn more about their community, especially
after a military move. A list of participating museums is available at www.arts.gov/bluestarmuseums.
“We are proud to participate in the Blue Star Museums program,”
said WVDCH Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith. “It is wonderful to be a part of a
program that gives back to our service members who do so much and make
sacrifices for us every day.”
A LOOK BACK AT 2016
The West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance has completed an enormously successful 2016, and the Department will no doubt build on last year’s momentum by continuing to recognize, help and work in tandem with veterans across the state to raise awareness and opportunities for the state’s 175,000-member community of former military men and women. Veterans Assistance Deputy Secretary Billy Wayne Bailey takes a look at some of those successes in column about some of the Department’s initiatives.
