Fayetteville VA Coastal Health Care System
FVAMC Hosting Welcome Home Event
September 12, 2011
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – It's going to be a party with a purpose when the Fayetteville VA Medical Center welcomes home Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn Veterans Sept. 17.
The event will start on the Fayetteville VAMC campus at 10:45 with an opening ceremony, presentation of colors and welcomes from medical center and community leaders. There will be a free lunch for participants, entertainment — including four different musical performance groups, and native American dancers with festivities ending at 4 p.m. There will be door prizes and other give-aways in between performances.
More than 40 community partners and VA offices will be available throughout the event so Veterans can get information on a variety of resources available to them. Those who haven't enrolled for the VA health care benefits will be able to do so on the spot during the event as well. Those who'd like to enroll should bring a copy of their DD Form 214 as well.
