“Giving back to the men and women who continually make sacrifices to ensure our nation’s freedom is rewarding and uplifting,” First Lady Tomblin said. “There are so many simple things individuals and communities can do to serve military families and veterans within our state. This initiative will encourage ongoing service to military families and veterans and provide participants with ways to share their experiences and offer suggestions for others to get involved.”
Each month, first lady Tomblin will announce a new mission on the “Serve West Virginia Military” website with suggestions and ideas that individuals or groups can develop to lend support to all branches of the military, their families and veterans. Businesses, not-for-profits, faith-based groups, schoolchildren of all ages and all community organizations are encouraged to join in the monthly mission to “Serve Those Who Serve Us."
