Richmond VA Medical Center recently hosted a “Welcome Home Celebration” for Veterans of all generations and their families.
Over 500 attendees enjoyed a barbeque, live entertainment and door prizes. The first 200 Veterans received a free pair of tickets to enjoy the Flying Squirrels Military Appreciation baseball game later that evening.
“It’s a day of celebration, education and information with an opportunity for Veterans to learn more about VA health care, benefits and hospital resources, remarked Lynn P. Anderson OEF/OIF/OND Program Manager.
There were federal, state, Veteran Service Organizations and community resource representation to assist all Veterans. Haley GMC, Knights of Columbus and other community organizations supported the event through their generous donations of time and resources.
The Welcome Home Event provided important resources to assist Veterans with employment, education, filing claims, health care, as well as many additional community resources and programs.
