The Mountaineer Military Museum at 345 Center Ave. in Weston recently announced its annual "Vet-together," set May 26.
The event takes place on the museum grounds, beginning approximately noon. Last year's event was attended by approximately 200 veterans, representing every major war, conflict and engagement from the D-Day landing of World War II to Afghanistan, and everything in between.
Visitors will be able to see many various military vehicles, several outside static displays (weather permitting), and tour the numerous displays in the museum.
This year, the museum will have a special historical presentation on the national anthem. Francis Scott Key, portrayed by Dr. Michael T. George, will tell the exciting story of the battle of Ft. McHenry and events that led to the writing of "The Star Spangled Banner." This inspirational and moving presentation has been acclaimed by people nationwide.
George is the president and CEO of PatriotHistory.org, an organization he founded, whose mission is to inspire people to embrace the values and characteristics displayed throughout the founding history of the United States. His presentation motivates all Americans young and old to emulate these hardworking individuals who became extraordinary leaders with honor, integrity and character.
George has been doing motivational and inspirational speaking for more than 10 years, and he specializes in training people to become leaders through retelling events that occurred during the founding of America. More information about him is available at www.patriothistory.org.
Following George's presentation, veterans and visitors will hear the "The Star Spangled Banner," sung by Renee Warner of Buckhannon.
Museum owners Ron and Barb McVaney invite everyone to attend this event, including all veterans groups, military vehicle collectors, military-era re-enactors, veterans motorcycle clubs, school groups, etc.
