Valentines for Veterans And The National Salute to Veteran Patients Week Starts February 10th

February means Valentines Day and the week of February 10-16 is also National Salute to Veteran Patients Week.  Sadly, it’s a week that will come and go with little notice. Let’s try and change that.

The week of February 14 each year is our opportunity to say thank you to more than 98,000 Veterans of the U.S. armed services who are cared for daily in Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers, outpatient clinics, domiciliaries and nursing homes.

It doesn’t matter where you are reading this from today; there is a VA center close to you and maybe this is your calling to visit hospitalized Veterans and to become involved as volunteers because your help will not go in vain.

The activities and events include special ward visits and valentine distributions; photo opportunities; school essay contests; special recreation activities and Veteran recognition programs all part of the “Valentines for Veterans.”

Also during National Salute week, selected cities host concerts that are free to Veterans and their families. Colorado has been selected as one of those locations this year at the Grand Junction VAMC featuring The Grass Roots on Thursday, February 14th at the historic Avalon Theater.

The concert honors all Veterans and in particular Gold Star Family Members. Veterans, families of Veterans and the general public are all welcome.

No admission will be charged to attend this concert “because the price has already been paid” by the sacrifices of America’s Veterans.

If you would like to get involved this year, with your organization/club or school please contact your nearest VA Medical Center (Link Above) and ask for Voluntary Service to discover the wonderful things that can be done to salute America’s Heroes.
