W.Va. Introduces Military Heritage Website


The state Division of Tourism has introduced a website and brochure on West Virginia’s military heritage ahead of the Memorial Day weekend.

The brochure was unveiled Thursday during the annual Run For The Wall stop at the state Capitol Complex in Charleston. The cross-country motorcycle trip honors the nation’s fallen military veterans and promotes awareness of veteran’s issues.

The website has sections dedicated to current and past veterans, along with military sites and museums. It also has a section for residents to share stories and photographs of veterans.

The state Department of Veterans Assistance, the Division of Culture and History and the state Humanity Council’s West Virginia Encyclopedia contributed to the brochure.
