Books are available at the Blount County Memorial Museum free to veterans. ‘Korea Reborn: A Grateful Nation Honors War Veterans for 60 years of Growth,’ was made by the South Korean government as a gift for veterans, and anyone interested in obtaining one can contact Amy Rhudy, Blount County Memorial Museum curator. The books will be available for pick up on March 28 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Local VFWs will also be able to receive the books, according to McNair. ‘Many Alabama veterans have looked through the pictures in this book and found pictures of themselves or pictures of places they knew,’ McNair said. For more information, call Rhudy at 625-6905. – Nicole Singleton
