Letter to the Editor:
The week of February 10 through February 14 is VA’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 come to the Medical Center at Fort Harrison or Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) 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 the week of February 10 through February 14, VA Montana would like to invite you to visit the Medical Center at Fort Harrison, our Community Living Center in Miles City or one of our Community Based Outpatient Clinics to visit with 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!
During National Salute to Veteran Patients Week, you can join our â€œVisit a Vet for Valentineâ€™s Dayâ€ program during this week, by bringing valentines to the Veterans and I would invite you to explore the opportunity to volunteer as well. VA Montana has a large volunteer organization that assists our facility in many areas and 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.

Director, VA Montana Health Care System
