AMVET posts across the country supported VA Medical Centers during it’s annual ‘Because We Care’ day April 5.
In particular, AMVETS Department of DC played host to our National Headquarters, who established a table in the DC VAMC main lobby and drew in several veterans seeking membership and visited many more while distributing personal care kits. Secretary of Veteran Affairs David Shulkin attended the event, addressing the media and numerous veterans whom had travelled to see him.Secretary Shulkin also took time to visit several ill veterans residing at the hospital to ask about their stay, their thoughts on several VA enhancements, and thank them for their service.
Thank you to our posts and AMVETS representatives who truly made this day about serving our fellow veterans, and our DC department for sharing the experience with National.
