Legislature Recognizes Veterans' Visibility Day

Veterans' Visibility Day was held today at the Capitol to honor West Virginia's active and retired military veterans and to give them a chance to express their concerns to the legislators.

Today's observance was made up of two separate ceremonies: the first was held in the House Chamber at 9:00am and the second was held in the Senate Chamber at 11:00am.

Senator Erik Wells, a veteran and current chairman of the Senate Military Committee and the Interim Veterans' Affairs Committee, spoke during the ceremony in the Senate Chamber this morning expressing his gratitude for our men and women in uniform serving our state and country. Senator Wells introduced Senate Resolution 11 today which designated February 18, 2013 as Veterans' Visibility Day.

Earlier in the House Chamber, Congressman Rahall received the 2012 Harry S. Truman Award from the National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS) in recognition of his legislative efforts in support of the men and women serving in the National Guard.
