Did you ever wish you could help our Veterans but could not get to the VA because of time, miles or family obligations????
We have the perfect solution for you !!! The VA Voluntary Services is implementing a pilot program to make telephone calls and check on our Hero’s.
Please consider this opportunity and let Anne
Parker, our National VAVS Representative know of your interest, by email: VAVS@bluestarmothers.us
Studies have shown that Veterans who have no one to check on them are more likely to be seen often in the Emergency Room and could suffer from mental health issues because they are lonely.
