Valentine’s Day is usually a day of planning and anticipation in hopes of being able to show those you care about how much they mean to you. In Fresno and in many other counties around the US, the week of the 14th offers a different opportunity. Incorporating the spirit of both Valentine’s Day and President’s Day, National Salute Week, February 10-16, offers citizens another chance to reach out to veterans, thanking them for their past service and continued sacrifice in the name of our great nation.
This year, while making Valentine’s Day plans with your special someone, take some time to either make a Valentine for a veteran in your community or call and stop by the Fresno VA Medical Center to give a personal salute to one of these brave men or women.
Cards can be mailed to the address below or dropped off at the front desk, room E107.2615 E. Clinton Ave Fresno, CA 93703 Attn: Voluntary Services
Find out more and keep up with the center by liking the VA Healthcare Systems page on Facebook!
So who are some special Veterans in your life?
