Nick, my son, is Office & Archives Manager for The Whittier Museum and a graduate of Whittier College. The Whittier Historical Society owns and operates the Whittier Museum and provides tours of the Historic Bailey House. On Saturday, March 30th, Nick held the opening ceremonies for a new exhibit honoring the legacy of José G. Ramos & Reinstalling the Veterans Hall. Ramos, a Vietnam veteran and Whittier resident, passed away in 2017. Whittier became, in 2002, the first city in the United States to proclaim a “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” (WHVVD) and celebrates March 30th as José Ramos Day to honor him and all Vietnam veterans | @professorbyzantine @whittiermuseum @whittiercollege @whatsupwhittier @cityofwhittier | #whittiermuseum #whittierhistoricalsociety #whittiercollege #cityofwhittier #whatsupwhittier #whittierlocal #whittier.
