Caring for our hospitalized veterans is an important aspect of our work at the VFW. And is it a rewarding thing to do -- to bring a smile to a veteran, who may not have had a visitor for a while. When we go, we sometimes play BINGO with the patients, and sometimes we visit them in their rooms. But always, we bring a smile and a kind word. You have never seen a brighter smile than the ones that you will receive from some of these individuals.

Our Post and Auxiliary are approximately 35 miles from the VA Medical Center at Durham, NC, so our regularly scheduled visits are there. However, we have members who live closer to the VA Medical Center at Fayetteville, and use that facility for their needs. In addition, some of the Medical Centers are also moving patients to nursing homes in the communities. So we visit them in those places too. As you can see, the Hospital program covers our visits to all of these facilities.

In addition to scheduled visits, all of these facilities are in need of regular volunteers. They need people every day to help in Escort, Reception, Coffee Break, Pharmacy, Bingo, and someone to write a letter or just read to the patients. So if you have a few hours, even once a week, contact your local hospital and ask how you can help.
