VA Hospital Renamed After Medal of Honor Recipient Woody Williams


On Sunday the VA Hospital in Huntington got a new name, a fitting tribute to West Virginia’s very own Medal of Honor Recipient Hershel “Woody” Williams.

“It’s a long time coming, most befitting and it’s a wait worth waiting for,” said Senator Joe Manchin, who attended the ceremony. Other speakers included Senator Capito and Evan Jenkins. 

Williams is a retired U.S. Marine and Veterans Affairs service officer, who has spent much of his life advocating for veterans and their families.

Through House Resolution 3363, that was signed by President Donald Trump, the Medical Center was officially renamed for The Hershel “Woody” Williams VA Medical Center.
