Happy Veterans Day!
The VA runs social programs designed to build morale and skills by doing enjoyable things. One just finished in Kalamazoo, Michigan (Oct. 28 -Nov.3). It was called the National Veterans Creative Arts Competition and Festival. (LINK) The sponsors were the Am. Legion Auxiliary and Battle Creek VHA.
I’ve choosen four 1st Place Winners to share in honor of Veterans Day and in appreciation to all who shared their gifts with others.
