Welcome Home Celebrations

The VA GLA is celebrating the 4th Annual Welcome Home Event to honor all Veterans and to welcome home returning Veterans.

These events are for Veterans, their families, and/or significant others. It will be held at our GLA facilities from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on the scheduled day of the event.

All OEF/OIF Veterans will receive gift bags, and anyone who brings in a fellow Veteran to enroll in our healthcare system for the first time, will receive a special gift!

If you need further information, please contact a VA in your area.
