Actor Tom Selleck to visit, bestow award upon Rahall

Actor Tom Selleck, who serves as the national spokesman for the underground visitor facility being built at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, will honor Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) Thursday with the Patriot Award.

Rahall, who chairs the House Natural Resources Committee, is being honored for facilitating the planning of the center. The congressman was the original co-sponsor for the legislation that authorized the center and the subsequent legislation that passed the House to expedite construction of the facility.
