The week of Feb. 13-17 is the Veterans Administration’s National Salute to Veteran Patients Week.
Throughout the state of Montana, there are men and women who are currently serving or have served our county to preserve our way of life and the freedom we enjoy. Many of these veterans have special health care needs and face challenges that we cannot imagine and come to the Medical Center at Fort Harrison or at Community Based Outpatient Clinics around the state for their health care. The employees and volunteers who work for VA Montana Health Care System are privileged to provide care to these heroes.
During this week, VA Montana would like to invite you to come to the Medical Center at Fort Harrison or one of our clinics to visit with the Veterans and show your appreciation for the sacrifices they have made for our country. The veterans enjoy visits from individuals and groups and this can help brighten their day!
You can join our “Visit a Vet for Valentine’s Day” program during this week and I would invite you to explore the opportunity to Volunteer. VA Montana has a large volunteer organization that assists our facility in many areas. This is a wonderful way to show your appreciation for all they have done.
If you would like to come to the Medical Center or one of our Clinics, please call our Voluntary Services office at (406) 447-7345 to schedule a visit and be part of the VA’s National Salute to Veteran Patients.
