The Virginia World War I and World War II Profiles of Honor Mobile Tour, a mobile exhibition featuring interactive exhibits, will travel to Cumberland High School Thursday, March 9, to allow students and the community to view artifacts and images showcasing Virginia’s role in World War I and World War II.

“Modeled on the highly successful Civil War 150 History Mobile tour, Profiles of Honor will bring to life the state’s integral role in both wars, highlighting stories of Virginians who served in both conflicts,” officials said in a press release. “As part of the tour, visitors will be invited to bring their own World War I and II-related photographs to be scanned for inclusion in the Virginia Profiles of Honor project.”

The tour will set up in front of Cumberland Middle School on Route 60. Members of the community are invited to tour the bus from 3-5 p.m. Those with items to scan may come from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
