Here’s a great news story about “The power of Joe.” Hollywood production dollars from the new GIjOE: Retaliation movie have already helped a military museum in Louisiana to overcome its recent economic hardships. The film’s propmasters and vehicle experts rented numerous pieces of military equipment from the Regional Military Museum in Houma, Louisiana for use in the movie.

All items were returned safely after filming was completed, and the funds raised from their rental will go towards future expansion and improvements at the museum. For complete details, you can read the full story and watch a short video from TV station WVUE in New Orleans, HERE.
