October 20, 1944 - On This Day in History, this photograph was made. "An American medium tank hit a Japanese landmine in surging forward to the Tacloban Air Strip during the early stages of the #Philippines invasion on Oct. 20.  Here, one of the wounded from the wrecked tank is being bandaged by a medical #corpsman. 1944. (@uscg)". From the National Archives and Records Administration #: 026-G-3531,  the #PhilippinesCampaign began on October 20, 1944, with forces under Gen. Douglas MacArthur invading the island to expel the Japanese after nearly three years of occupation. Over 1.5 million U.S. and Filipino forces took part in the campaign which lasted until the Japanese surrendered on Sept. 2, 1945. Nearly 80,000 American servicemen were killed or wounded, as well as an unknown number of Filipino casualties. In 2000, President Clinton signed into law #Veteran benefits aiding certain Filipino #Veterans residing in the U.S., who fought alongside American troops during World War II. #HonoringVets #HonorTheFallen #ThisDayInHistory #WWII #WW2

October 18, 1918 - On This Day in History - this photo was made. "First Lieut.  E. V. (Eddie) Rickenbacker, 94th Aero Squadron, American ace, standing up in his Spad plane.  Near Rembercourt, France.  October 18, 1918.  Sgt. Gideon J. Eikleberry. (@usarmy)”. From the National Archives and Records Administration, Medal of Honor recipient Edward Vernon Rickenbacker was America’s most successful fighter ace of #WWI and one of the most decorated #serviceman by the U.S., and allies alike. He became an ace within the first month as a fighter pilot and from April 1918 to October, he scored 26 air kills, 14 of those in the last month.  His earlier experience as a race car driver, earning the name “Fast Eddie”  likely benefitting his skill as a pilot, learned years later. After the war, he continued to race cars and was an auto designer, a government military consultant and pioneer in air transportation. #HonoringVets #ThisDayInHistory

Described as an exceptional cook, @usarmy #Veteran Joseph Brooks is a Nutrition and Food Service employee at the Baltimore VA Medical Center. He has been cooking for 40 years, first as a teenager in a nursing home and then in the #Army. "He continues to look at areas he can improve and bring his best. He is a motivation to others in the kitchen and assists in the training of new cooks," said his supervisor. 
Of his 40 years cooking, 31 have been behind the stove at the VA Maryland Health Care System, where he enjoys contributing to the well being of his fellow #veterans. His favorite part of his job is the food prep and getting food ready for the meal service. "I love to cook" he said, noting that the Food and Nutrition Service employees take a great deal of pride in what they do. "We really care!" #HonoringVets

A small taste of the majestic sounds from the @tulsa_symphony could be heard in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center on Oct 10. Lorelei Barton, harpist, and Pete Peterson, cellist, performed for #Veterans as part of Heart Strings, an outreach program that provides patients of area health care facilities with the comfort of music. "It’s a breath of fresh air,” said @usnavy #Veteran Donnie Morris, a former musician who is receiving treatment for a stroke. “If you are having a bad time you can (reminisce) on your music days. All is right with music.” The Tulsa Symphony visits the hospital once a month to entertain #Veterans and provide the healing power of music. “We are happy to do it,” said Barton. “We could be doing other things, but we chose to make this a priority because it is so well received. Music is a language that can reach anybody at anytime - not just the Veterans. I think it’s also a gift to those who work here. It gives a little breath of fresh air, a little oasis during their day.” #HonoringVets #Volunteering

It's not every day that we get a surprise visit from a Medal of Honor recipient at the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System in North Las Vegas. But on October 11, we were lucky enough to have TWO of these courageous #Veterans come to our hospital.  Hershel "Woody" Williams, a Marine who fought on Iwo Jima, is the oldest living Medal of Honor recipient at 95 years old. The Hershel "Woody" Williams VA Medical Center in Huntington, West Virginia is honored to bear his name. Donald "Doc" Ballard, a @usnavy Corpsman who fought in #Vietnam, was wounded 8 times while saving the lives of his @marines. These #heroes met with some of our Veterans, toured our facilities, and spoke to VA employees about caring for our Veterans. #HonoringVets #MedalOfHonor

Thanks to everyone who came out for the groundbreaking for our new parking facility on Monday, Sept. 24, 2018.

In recent years, the Providence VAMC has experienced an increase in the number of Veteran outpatient appointments, which has resulted in a shortage of parking spaces on the Providence campus. The $12 million parking facility project will provide 450 parking spaces for #Veterans, guests and staff. Anticipated completion of the project will be in the fall of 2019. Jarrett Construction Company, of Montgomery, Ala., is the general contractor for the project. #HonoringVets

This artillery turned 100 years old on September 26, 2018. It’s embossed with the date of “Sept 26” and “Argonne” to commemorate the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of World War I which began September 26, 1918, and was fought until the Armistice of November 11, 1918.

Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center in North Chicago, Illinois, sent Congrats to World War II #Veteran, Shirley Given, who was honored at a Black Hawks game, recently. Very humble, she was flattered by the amount of “Thank you for your service” and handshakes she got at the game. After high school, Ms. Given made the decision to do something for her country. So rather than attend college, she volunteered for the @usarmy. “They were taking all the boys and I said hey well, they can take some girls too.” She ended up in the medical corps. At 96, Ms. Given remembers her time in service as more of a feeling of #patriotism and unity instead of a memory. The gameday honor was courtesy of a partnership between the USO of Illinois, Chicago Blackhawks, and Boeing. Thank you Amber Bobin for sharing your incredible grandmother with us! #HonoringVets #WorldWarIIVet

Mellissa Strom was one of 100 volunteers who came out last week to help #Veterans get settled into their new cabins. The Cabins in the Woods are nestled on the 500-acre lot of the VA Maine Healthcare System. Team Depot put to good use all of the donations that poured in, everything from soil, mulch, sheds, plants and trees as well as lawn equipment and patio materials. Strom was eager to get her hands dirty, she’s been with Home Depot for nine years and loves giving back. She’s a supervisor at the Home Depot in Waterville, ME. Strom currently serves as an active duty E01 Navy reserves SeaBee. “The Cabin in the Woods provides a great opportunity for a lot of homeless Veterans. This initiative is a starting point for every VA to take this example from. They served their country and I think it's a good way to give back to them,” Strom said. #HonoringVets #Volunteering #HomelessVets

Larry and Charles McDaniel waited over 70-years for their father, Master Sgt. Charles McDaniel Sr., who was missing in action during the Korean War, to be located and identified. Recently they placed a rosette next to his name that resides in the Courts of Missing in the Honolulu Memorial at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The rosette signifies that Master Sgt. McDaniel's remains have been identified. The rosette is a compass rose surrounded by rosemary. The rosemary wreath is a tribute in remembrance to our #MIA's and fallen. The compass rose is symbolic of America's continuing efforts to search for our missing. #HonorTheFallen #HonoringVets

October 8, 1918 - on This Day in History - "Sgt. Alvin C. York, 328th Infantry, with aid of 17 men, captured 132 German prisoners (and earned the Medal of Honor); shows hill on which raid took place.  Argonne Forest, near Cornay, France.” Photo - February 7, 1919.  Pfc. F.C. Phillips. (@usarmy)” National Archives and Records Administration (@usnatarchives) photo and caption. 
York was considered a rebel-rouser as a young man. Then, after a religious conversion experience, he found humility, religious zeal and pacifism. He struggled long with his conscience before committing to allied cause by picking up a weapon. His bravery and skills as a woodsman and marksman led to his extraordinary action during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. He served #Veterans long after the war as an advocate as well as a supporter of local business and education. The Tennessee Valley Healthcare System’s Alvin C. York Campus in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is named for the World War I hero. #HonoringVets #WWI #ThisDayInHistory

Argonne Forest, near Cornay, France.” Photo - February 7, 1919. Pfc. F.C. Phillips. (@usarmy)” National Archives and Records Administration (@usnatarchives) photo and caption. York was considered a rebel-rouser as a young man. Then, after a religious conversion experience, he found humility, religious zeal and pacifism. He struggled long with his conscience before committing to allied cause by picking up a weapon. His bravery and skills as a woodsman and marksman led to his extraordinary action during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. He served #Veterans  long after the war as an advocate as well as a supporter of local business and education. The Tennessee Valley Healthcare System’s Alvin C. York Campus in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is named for the World War I hero. #HonoringVets  #WWI  #ThisDayInHistory

At age 16, Alonzo Bowman (1848-1885) enlisted in the @usarmy’s 8th Maine Infantry. He served from 1864 to 1866.

He died this week in 1885 and is buried in Fort Bayard National Cemetery (NM).

Special thanks to @usarmy #Veteran JP Lane, who visited our Houston VA last week and stopped to entertain some #Veterans with a song in the lobby. Mr. Lane is a double amputee who served in #Afghanistan. He is an amazing singer, who performed at two presidential inaugurations and spends much of his time giving back to other Veterans and spreading his message of hope and determination. Thank you Mr. Lane for your service and for sharing your talent with us! #HonoringVets

VA Texas Valley Coastal Bend Health Care System celebrates its Red Coat Ambassadors. These VA volunteers and staff members promote a culture of care to #Veterans, families, and visitors. Ambassadors are positioned near the front entrances of VA facilities in order to make guests feel welcomed and provide quicker, easier access to information. They wear a uniform consisting of a red coat or vest to be easily identified. They assist Veterans, their families, and caregivers by providing directions or personally escorting Veterans to appointments, based on preference. The ambassadors may also contact the patient’s assigned escort or the wheelchair service, if a wheelchair is needed.

Hailed mostly from Puerto Rico, the acclaimed @usarmy's 65th Infantry Regiment - The Borinqueneers - actively served in 1899-1956 during #WWI, #WWII and the Korean War. Recently, the Borinqueneers presented Mr. Timothy W. Liezert and the #OrlandoVA with a Borinqueneer Coin and donated a monumental book to our Library. What a great way to celebrate #HispanicHeritageMonth! #HonoringVets #borinqueneers
