Here at the Bridge, we want to thank and honor our Nation’s Veterans – not just on Veteran’s Day – but everyday. A great way to show your appreciation is to volunteer at the nearby Washington DC VA Hospital Center. A good opportunity to do so is at the VA’s Ladies’ Night on Friday, Nov. 16 from 5:30 – 8 p.m. Ladies’ Night is a major outreach event created especially for female Veterans. Can’t make it Friday? Here is a link to a number of volunteer opportunities. But really, all it takes to make a difference is stopping by the hospital and simply visiting with the veterans. Just a little of your time, and some friendly conversation, makes a big difference to these good men and women who sacrificed so much, and are working so hard to recover from injuries. The VA hospital is located at 50 Irving St. NW, Washington, DC 20422, and is easily accessible by car, as well as a shuttle that picks up and drops off at the Brookland CUA Metro station.

  1. What a timely, thoughtful blog on our Nation’s Heroes! Opportunities to volunteer abound at our VA Medical Center, and they don’t have to be complex. Maybe you would like to lunch now and again with a World War II Veteran. Do you play pool or ping pong? We have senior Olympians who live with us and wish for some competition. Are you a tcchie? We have a number of young Veterans pursuing their education online who could use a hand. Want to give back Christmas morning? Join us and a huge Jewish contingency as we distribute gifts and sing carols. It is truly the best morning ever! Brookland Blog, thank you for the recognition and Brookland citizens, just give a ring at 202-745-8320 to volunteer. Diane.
