On behalf of all the staff and our nation’s heroes at the Idaho State Veterans Home-Boise, we would like to thank all those who helped make this year’s Christmas so very special. We thank you for your kindness, your caring, and the wonderful gifts our veterans received as well as the time spent with them.
There were many, many veterans organizations, groups and individuals who helped make sure our veterans had a special Christmas. If I tried to mention them all, I would undoubtedly miss some, so let me just say thanks to everyone.
We also deeply appreciate the support for our outreach program that provided gifts for homeless veterans in our community. It was a great success, thanks to the generosity of all of you in the community.
And special thanks to Gowen Field for their never-ending support — no matter what their mission, they never forget our veterans. We deeply appreciate all who went the extra mile to make the veterans Christmas special. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
I hope the new year brings great joy to us all.
Phil Hawkins, volunteer coordinator, Idaho State Veterans Home, Boise
