PHILADELPHIA — Today, Vet to Vet Tennessee (VTVT) announced a partnership with the Delaware Valley Veteran’s Home (DVVH) to recognize and honor Veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice during World War II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
This announcement represents the latest example of VTVT’s commitment to working closely with nonprofit organizations and other community partners to identify new and innovative ways to support Veterans’ health and well-being through this initiative. DVVH is the first Veteran/Military Friendly Organization recognized by the Military Chaplains Association of America (MCA) and VTVT.Click here to Read More
V2VT will provide DVVH with Certificates of Honor for the WWII and Korean Veterans and their surviving spouses and Presidential Proclamations and Vietnam War Commemoration Certificates of Honor for surviving spouses.
The program is Veteran-centric and provides the Veteran with a personal recognition on behalf of a grateful nation for their patriotism, service and sacrifice. The life cycle of the program continues after the passing of the veteran. Several months after the bereavement support, the DVVH staff will recognize the surviving spouse for their service and sacrifice with a Certificate of Honor and a lapel pin.
We are pleased to work with the DVVH on this important initiative and are excited about its potential to create more opportunities to serve.
VTVT and MCA will continue to build model programs and networks with Veteran/Military Friendly faith-based community organizations to improve the quality of life during and after their service.
VTVT would like to especially acknowledge DVVH Commandant A. Peter Ojeda, RN, BSN, NHA, DVVH Medical Records Director Regina Keys, RHIT and DVVH advocate and Philadelphia Pretzel giver Dr. Richard J. Junod (USMC) for their heartwarming care and support.
