On May 14th, we hosted our annual Welcome Home Picnic. Each year, VA’s across the nation hold welcome home events, open to Veterans coming back from the middle east, to provide information about the VA services they have earned and are entitled to receive. This was our 4th welcome home event and for it, we teamed up with the Pinellas County Gator Club (sorry Nole fans). The Gator club provided all of the food and entertainment for the event. This year’s picnic was an opportunity for Veterans to come together, meet each other and each other’s families, enjoy live music, games, free food, and receive information about VA services.
Mr. Trainman, from the Pinellas County Gator Club said, "Our Pinellas County Gator Club can't thank you enough for the wonderful VA staff assistance that made our International Gator Day Welcome Home picnic a fun day and memorable event.”
If you have recently returned from service and are looking for help and information regarding your VA benefits, please visit our OEF/OIF/OND Program.
