National Salute to our Hospitalized Veterans Week (VA Hospital, Denver)

The week of February 11-15 has been designated as "National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week." I had the honor of visiting vets at almost every floor of the Veterans Hospital in Denver on Valentine's Day. This day was another reminder to me of our veterans who face many challenges after their military service to our country. If you have the time, I encourage you to visit your local VA Clinic or Hospital just to say "thank you" to our vets. Your kindness, and those simple words can make a big difference in somebody's life. It's the least we can do since they have done so much for us. Debbie Baker, Mrs. Pikes Peak 2008, and I visited the hospital together and passed out homemade Valentine's from a local Brownie Troop. Debbie and I celebrating our day together at the hospital.
