The event was in collaboration with the NNMC Community Health Fair located in the main lobby of the hospital that same day. The NOVS appreciates the efforts of these organizations for their support and assistance to the veteran community. Photo L to R: Volunteers Linda Reed, Anne Fleming, Louis McCready.
