STOMACH VALENTINE'S DAY IS

RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.

AND AS YOU ARE SENDING YOUR

LOVE HERE AND THERE, THE VA

MOUNTAIN CENTER IS ASKING YOU

TO SEND SOME LOVE THEIR WAY TO

OUR NATION'S VETERANS.

IT'S PART OF THE NATIONAL

SALUTE TO VETERANS WEEK.

HERE IS MORE IS THE VOLUNTARY

SERVICE OFFICE ON THE VA

MEDICAL CENTER CAMPUS.

AND IT'S GOOD TO HAVE YOU.

THIS IS A PROGRAM THAT YOU

ARE TELLING ME YOU ACTUALLY

HAVE DONE FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW

REALLY COMBINING VALENTINE'S

DAY WITH A SALUTE TO OUR WEEK.

IT STARTED AS A WEEKLONG

CELEBRATION THAT WE ACTUALLY

STARTED SUNDAY THE NINTH AND WE

GO THROUGH FEBRUARY 15.

WHICH IS THE NEXT FOLLOWING

SATURDAY.

WE ARE REALLY ASKING FOR THE

VISITORS TO VETERANS VOLUNTEERS

AND, ACTUALLY, HOPEFULLY, TO

GET PEOPLE TO TAKE TIME OUT OF

THEIR OWN LIFE AND FOR THE

VETERANS.

THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS THAT

WE CAN DO TO JUST DO SOMETHING

LITTLE.

TO LET THEM KNOW THAT WE CARE,

THAT WE ARE APPRECIATIVE.

AND, WE HAVE BEEN TAKING UP

SOME OF THE STATION.

WE KNOW A LOT OF PRESCHOOLS

AROUND THE AREA ARE AS WELL.

YOU CAN MAKE YOURS.

WE'VE GOT SOME BEAUTIFUL

HANDMADE CARDS THAT THEY WOULD

APPRECIATE AS WELL AS

PURCHASING.

TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT SOME

OF THESE CARS AND THINGS THAT

YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.

THIS IS PROBABLY MOST OF

WHAT WE ARE SEEING.

FOR THESE SCHOOL KIDS.

WE HAVE QUITE A FEW FROM THESE

INDIVIDUALS OUT OF THESE CARS.

AND WE ARE LOOKING AT PROBABLY

1100 THAT WE HAVE IN THE OFFICE

RIGHT NOW.

WHICH IS GOOD.

WE DO DIFFERENT THINGS WITH

THEM EVERY DAY.

STARTING THIS MONDAY MORNING.

WE START GETTING OUT TO THAT.

WE WILL TAKE THEM TO THEIR

ROOMS.

WE HAVE VISITORS COMING OUT.

IF WE DON'T HAVE THEIR OWN

CARDS WE GET THOSE FROM THE

SCHOOL KIDS AND LET THEM KNOW

WHERE THEY ARE FROM.

THEY WILL TAKE THEM TO THE

WAITING AREAS.

IS PRETTY GOOD.

THAT IS ACTUALLY WHAT WE LIKE.

IT HITS THEM THAT HARD.

AND THE HEARTSTRINGS.

AND WE'RE GOING TO GIVE AN

ADDRESS COMING UP IN JUST A

LITTLE BIT SO YOU CAN TAKE THAT

DOWN OR YOU CAN DROP IT OFF AT

THE STATION.

WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT IT GETS

THERE.

LAST YEAR, TAKE ME BACK TO THE

RESPONSE THAT YOU GOT AND, WHAT

YOU'VE HEARD FROM THE VETERANS

AS THEY WERE ABLE TO GET A

LITTLE EXTRA LOVE.

OUR OFFICE DOES A LOT OF THE

ESCORTING OF THE INDIVIDUALS IN

THE GROUPS AND THE DIGNITARIES

THAT COME ON THAT FRIDAY.

WE JUST CAN'T GET OVER.

CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING IN

HOSPITAL CLINICS AND, THAT ARE

COMING OUT HERE IN THE HANDMADE

CARDS IT'S IS BEEN GREAT.

YOU GET SMILES AND HE GETS HERE

AND ONE OF THE THINGS I WAS

NOTICING.

AS I WAS LOOKING THROUGH SOME

OF THE INFORMATION IS THAT WE

DON'T REALIZE HOW MANY

DIFFERENT FACILITIES AND

AVENUES THAT YOU GUYS HAVE IT'S

NOT JUST THE HOSPITAL THERE ON

THE CAMPUS.

YOU HAVE SO MANY OTHER

DIFFERENT PROGRAMS.

WITH THESE CLINICS AND UMBRELLA

OF CARE.

AND THEY GIVE THEM OUT AS THEY

CAN CHECK IN FOR THEIR

APPOINTMENTS.

AND ON OUR STATION ALONE WE

HAVE THE LONG-TERM FACILITY

BOTH OF WHICH HAVE NUTRITION

FOOD SERVICE AND THEY CAN BE

PUT ON THE VETERANS TRAYS.

WE JUST THINK OF ALL KINDS OF

NEAT THINGS TO USE THE CARDS

FOR

AND, IF YOU HAVE SOME TIME,

YOU WOULD LOVE PEOPLE TO COME

DOWN AND VOLUNTEER AND SPEND

THAT QUALITY TIME.

MATCHES FOR THE WEEK.

BUT IF YOU WANT TO COME TO

VISIT FOR THAT WE, JUST CALL US

GET US PUT ON THE SCHEDULE BUT

IF YOU WANT TO DECIDE THAT IT

HELPS HERE, PLENTY OF

OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE

WITH SPECIAL TREATS PLANNED.

WE ARE GOING TO SPEND SOME TIME

WITH YOU ON VALENTINE'S DAY AND

CERTAINLY LOOKING FORWARD TO

THAT.

WHEN YOU NEED THE CARDS BY

CLICK

AND WE CAN START DIVVYING THEM
