Former College Place resident Harley Green received his master's in computer science with a specialization in computer security on May 13 from the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering.

A 2004 alum of Walla Walla Valley Academy, Harley earned a bachelor's in computer engineering and computer science from University of Southern California in December 2007.

Harley and wife Adrienne are moving to Virginia this month where Harley will continue working for The Aerospace Corporation. He joined the company in early 2008 as an associate-MTS and that May started a part-time graduate program at USC. In January 2010, he was promoted to MTS.

Following graduation, the couple enjoyed a two-week camping trip in Southern Utah National Parks. They packed their home in Hermosa Beach, Calif., up on June 1 and set out for his job at Aerospace's Chantilly, Va., office. Harley noted online that he plans to "enjoy life with my wonderful wife in the free state of Virginia."

His parents are Yvonne Stratton and Stanley Green, both of College Place.

Fort Walla Walla Museum just became affiliated with the Blue Star Museums program.

This initiative is a partnership of Blue Star Families and the National Endowment for the Arts. It allows free admission to more than 1,300 museums nationwide to active-duty military personnel and their immediate families through the summer until Labor Day.

"The men and women who wear the country's uniforms do so much on our behalf," said Don Locati, museum operations manager. "We think honoring them in this way is a great idea. Fort Walla Walla Museum portrays the heritage of this region, which is based to a great extent on the interaction between soldiers, pioneers and the people of the Homeland Tribes. Walla Walla grew up around its namesake fort and inviting those who currently serve their country to enjoy the Museum seems like a great way to allow a long-standing tradition to continue."

Bearers of the approved ID, including members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reserve, as well as up to five immediate family members, may take part in the program as often as they like at as many affiliated museums as they choose. The family of a deployed spouse is entitled to enjoy the program, too.

Fort Walla Walla Museum's current hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily. Admission is free to active-duty military personnel and their immediate families.
