Veterans in Harrison County got some early Christmas gifts on Tuesday.
The “Lewis County Vietnam Veterans of America” and VFW Post 1976 brought gifts and warm clothing, care packages and $400 to both the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center and “The West Virginia Veterans Nursing Facility” in Clarksburg.
The VVA has been bringing gifts to the hospital and nursing home for 4 years.
“A lot of the veterans that are both in the medical center and also in the nursing home they may not have families to come and visit them and bring them gifts,” said Vice President of VVA 996, Marty Debersig. “These are just a small token of our appreciation for the service that they did.”
This is the first year that the VFW has teamed with the VVA, giving a check $200 to both facilities.
