CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia has launched an initiative to support active military, their families and veterans.
First lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin announced the "Serve West Virginia: Serving Those Who Serve Us" initiative Monday in a news release.
The effort is part of the national "Joining Forces" initiative. The goal is to get grass roots and community groups involved in providing support and assistance.
Tomblin says a mission will be announced each month on the "Serve West Virginia Military" website, http://www.serve.wv.gov.
Individuals and groups are encouraged to develop local projects.
