Holiday shopping for vets at VA hospital

Posted: Updated:

Holiday shopping for some veterans at the VA hospital began Wednesday.

The vets were able to look around at the gift shop and pick out things for family or for themselves.  The gifts going out to family members will be wrapped and shipped.

"It's great i picked out as I said gifts for my wife and I got a couple of things for myself."

"It's difficult in the holiday season and here they are in the hospital and they can't be with their family, some might be and this way they will give gifts to their family."

The gifts are free of charge to the veterans because they are donated from Local American Legion groups.
