Veterans and employees look forward to celebrating the holidays at the Memphis Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center. Each year, the executive leaders at the Memphis VA host six Holiday Open House events in December.

The six events include a celebration on each tour and each outpatient clinic throughout the season. Fun holiday music is played, great decorations dress the hallways, an assortment of refreshments are served thanks to the Veterans Canteen Service, and there is an air of relaxation.

“The Holiday Open House is an excellent way to open the doors and welcome all who we serve,” said Memphis VA Director David K. Dunning.

It’s the holidays, and a few decorations and an open heart are sure to put people in a festive mood.  And that’s exactly what happens at the Memphis VA.
