Finally SEC/VA has created and filled a Government position to direct the VA's History Program to include the VA History Center
Further, by establishing the Center in Dayton, the VA can leverage the region's specialized collegiate degree programs and our expertise in artifact management. This, in turn, increases the value and attractiveness of these degrees/skills, and attracts more people to obtain degrees and stay in the the region.
Finally, a VA History Center in Dayton which houses the history and contributions of the Department of Veterans Affairs, will compliment the new National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus which houses the stories of service and sacrifice of our Nations veterans and their families. This complimentary relationship should attract visitors to both sites.
2. Has it increased regional visitor/tourist attendance?
3. Has it satisfied the SEC/VA requirement to improve management of its heritage artifacts nationwide?
Further, we estimate 440 new long term historian, archivist, retail, tourism support and educational jobs (both Government and civilian) will be created to support a fully operational Center
