History is on the move as the WWI and WWII Profiles of Honor Tour travels to VA-1 Summit

The Virginia WWI and WWII Profiles of Honor Tour will be at VA-1 on Monday, November 12, where it will be located outside of the Convention Center on 5th Street across from the Richmond Marriott. The mobile museum, free and open to the public, features stories and artifacts from dozens of Virginians who served in World War I and World War II as well as a full-scale model of an M5A1 Stuart tank. The tour, which brings to life Virginia’s integral role in world history, is part of a statewide commemoration marking the 100th anniversary of World War I and the 75th anniversary of World War II.

Tourism Gives Back

Drop off your gently used shoes of any kind at a Soles4Souls collection box at the VA-1 Summit. Give shoes. Give love.

Soles4Souls creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Since 2006, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries. For more information about Soles4Souls visit soles4souls.org.
