Annual VA Christmas Parties – The holidays can be a lonely time for Marines and veterans with little family around at the VA Hospitals and State Veteran Homes in Michigan. Members work to provide an evening during the month of December to the Veterans who are receiving long term care or rehabilitation. Food, entertainment, and small gifts are given to the veterans to show them our appreciation for their service, then and now.
