A Message from the Director - November WDVA Veteran Voices

David Puente

As we approach Veterans Day, I want to recognize all our Veteran staff, Residents, volunteers, and agency partners and say thank you for your service. We are incredibly proud to work with such dedicated members of our team and community who serve with honor. These individuals have selflessly served our country and now serve our communities in the best ways they can—making them truly invaluable to us.  And to military spouses, family members, and caregivers I extend my sincere appreciation!  We know that military service touches everyone in the family and without your contributions our Veterans would not have had the support and stability to perform the duties asked of them.

If you can, please attend one of the wonderful events this year to show your appreciation for Veterans Day! For options about how to commemorate and pay tribute to those who have served, view our calendar of events that our community partners have shared throughout Washington.

Happy Veterans Day!
