Your Neighbor in Real Estate: Valentines for Vets and National Salute to Veteran Patients

Valentines for Vets and National Salute to Veteran Patients

Valentines for VeteransNational Salute to Veteran Patients and Valentines for Vets

As an American, do you feel enough of a debt of gratitude to the men and women who have worn the uniform on our behalf, to take the time to send a valentine card to several of them?

Veterans always appreciate heartfelt recognition of their service,  and this is one way you can show your appreciation!

Join in the National Salute to Veteran Patients. This program encourages Americans to visit and volunteer at the Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers and to send letters of thanks or valentines to those who have protected our nation. This year's national salute is Feb. 12-18.

Concerts and other programs are held across the country as part of the National Salute to Veteran Patients week festivities.
In Los Angeles, it will be held on February 13,  The Grass Roots  Los Angeles, CA.



Valentines for Vets

Sending a valentine or, better yet, visiting our veterans or volunteering at one of the VA medical facilities is a wonderful way to express our gratitude to those who have served our country. The veterans would be especially thrilled if you could spend a few minutes visiting and talking about their families and hometowns. Tell them how much you appreciate their service.

Teachers have always been wonderfully supportive in making this a class project, especially with those charming and much-appreciated handmade valentines. Students learn to express their creativity while learning the satisfaction of doing for others.

Every year, the dedicated members of Camp Fire USA participate in this VA program, and Salvation Army volunteers distribute valentines, gifts and refreshments at various VA facilities around the country.

Last year, more than 328,000 valentines were received at VA medical centers, and 21,330 people visited nearly 70,000 veteran patients. That was an  overwhelming increase from 2009. Let’s make it better this year!

Have a great Valentines Day!

Our family makes our servicemen a priority. We've adopted a Marine, have sent shoes and AC to the field etc...this is another way to make sure they all know we care.

I know about a christmas card project like this, but never heard of this one.  Thanks for sharing and I'm gonna pass the word on my facebook page with your blog too.

Hi Karen, Wow, you really do a lot. Kudos to you for making servicemen a priority.
