Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has plans for a new holiday tradition in West Virginia.

Tomblin and first lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin have invited all West Virginians to contribute photos for a "military recognition" tree this holiday season to be displayed on a tree in the governor's reception room of the State Capitol this winter.

"Whether serving here at home or halfway around the world, our military men and women have answered the call to duty time and again, ensuring our safety and our freedom," Earl Ray Tomblin said in a news release. "I'm grateful for their selfless service, and I'm proud of the strong traditions they represent."

Joanne Tomblin said it's important to recognize the families who patiently wait for their loved ones to return from military service.

All photos must be submitted with a form, which can be found at www.governor.wv.gov by clicking on the "Governor and First Lady's Military Recognition Tree" icon. Photos will not be returned, and they must be received by Nov. 23.
