Representatives Hill & Van Huss Secure $50,000 For Johnson City/Washington County Veterans Memorial

(NASHVILLE) — State Representative Matthew Hill (R-Jonesborough) and State Representative Micah Van Huss (R-Johnson City) today announced they have secured $50,000 for the Johnson City/Washington County Veterans Memorial.

The monies are a part of the 2018-2019 budget and will be used to support the memorial.

Recently, the Tennessee Veterans Memorial Foundation announced plans to add approximately 1,200 new spaces for the names of additional Johnson City and Washington County veterans to the existing shrine memorializing our local military heroes.

Located in Kiwanis Park near the Mountain Home National Cemetery, the memorial honors the brave men and women who have served our nation during World War I to the present and future years. It is a lasting tribute to our past, present, and future service members who make tremendous sacrifices in order to keep us free.

Throughout their time serving in our General Assembly, Representatives Hill and Van Huss have fought for Northeast Tennessee’s veterans, active duty service members, and military families. Securing this important funding is a small way to thank these important groups for their dedication to our state and to our nation.

“Our veterans have made exceptional sacrifices to defend our freedom, and this memorial serves as an appropriate tribute to them,” said Representative Hill. “I am pleased that we were able to secure funding for this important project which will enable us to honor more of our future veterans, and I will continue to fight for our military members and their families.”

“This memorial is a small way we can recognize and thank our veterans for their selfless and courageous service to our nation,” said Representative Van Huss. “As a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, it is an honor to support this memorial by securing the vital funding it needs. This will ensure that future generations of our citizens are able to visit it and learn more about those the memorial honors.”
