Museum to Honor Vets Planned for Georgetown

If a trio of men can realize their shared dream, Georgetown would be the home of a national museum to honor veterans from the Korean War and Vietnam to the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. A Web site — Vmmky.org — was launched in late October to publicize and raise money for the National Veterans Memorial Museum. The museum would be "devoted to the history, service and memory of veterans of the United States armed forces," according to its incorporation papers. Its directors are Lexington resident Todd Strecker, Georgetown Mayor Everette Varney and Scott County Realtor Obey Wallen.
