This week AMVETS volunteers are out in force at VA medical facilities and Veteran Homes across the country to recognize and support sick and hospitalized veterans for AMVETS Because We Care Day.
AMVETS Post #59 Hanover Township & AMVETS Post #189 Greater Pittston will conduct their annual AMVETS Because We Care Day Ceremony at the W-B VAMC 2nd floor Liberty Hall on Wednesday, April 3 at 10 a.m. and at the Gino Merli Veterans Home, Scranton General Purpose Room at 2 p.m.
Commander Bernard J. McDonald of AMVETS Post #189 said, “Because We Care Day is our way of saying thanks for their service and sacrifices made to keep our country free. Though AMVETS volunteers can routinely be found at VA facilities and State Veterans Homes throughout the year, we take the time each April to go out in force to demonstrate our steadfast support to our sick and hospitalized heroes.”
