Many of our veterans are in VA hospitals. We need to give them the best medical care possible. But we also need to show them our love, support, and appreciation.
National Salute to Veterans Week is February 7-13, 2010. This is a great opportunity to get involved to show your support for veterans. There is something everybody can do. And it's very easy and does not cost a whole lot of money. Send Valentine's Day cards to hospitalized veterans.
Almost every VA hospital will allow you to send a box of Valentine's to them and they will disperse them to patients. Just contact your local VA hospital on this procedure. Take a little time to write a short note on each one. You don't need to get too fancy. The note of support will mean more. Put your heart into it and give them like you mean it. Search the list of VA hospitals.
If you would like to volunteer your time for veterans, visit www.volunteer.va.gov.
We also would like to thank the members of Camp Fire USA and the Salvation Army for getting involved in passing out Valentine's, gifts, and treats to our veterans.
Teachers, why not make it a class project? Even if you need to spend a few dollars out of your pocket for some boxes of Valentine's, it's worth it. Have your class write letters to veterans. They can even make them as art projects. Then take or send them to your nearest VA facility. An easy of showing your support and thanking our veterans.
Now go out and support our troops!
