Monthly Dinner: December 2017
December 15th, 2017
It is important to mention that our main purpose in having our monthly dinners is to let the patients and their families know that we recognize, honor, support, and thank them for their sacrifices and for what they have done for us.
We have expanded our mission to include assistance and support to all poly trauma patients, both those presently in the VA Hospital and those “out patients” that are residing outside of the Hospital and still undergoing Hospital treatments, whether they are still on active duty OR are discharged or retired. As long as they have served OIF or OEF (meaning they have served in Iraq or Afghanistan), Operation Helping Hand will help them in any way possible.
