For the past few days, the Mountaineer Military Museum in Weston has been working on a new addition to make their museum a little bigger.

The main goal of this museum is to honor those who have served our country and owners feel that a larger space is needed to do that. Owners told us they're excited about the new space so they can finally bring out some of the history that's been hiding back in storage. The new area is going to have a lot more interactive exhibits and something special for the veterans.

"Our key display is going to be for our Vietnam section which is going to have a reflection room. It's a place for healing. If I had my way it'd be done tomorrow," said Barb McVaney, Co-Owner.

Volunteers said this is a small way to give back to the museum and all of its workers for all the good they do for the community.

"Well for one thing they're real good friends, but the other thing is what they're doing for the veterans and the memory is just awesome. I'm a veterans and I'm here to support the other veterans and they just do an awesome job," Dwight Center, Volunteer and Veteran.

Owners are hoping to have the new display up and running by their annual Vet Day in May, but they need your help. If you want to volunteer call the museum directly at 304- 472- 3943 or visit them at 345 Center Avenue.
