Pictures from Singing at the VA, Christmas 2014|
Sharing our abundance in gratitude.
In 2014, 139 people gathered, enjoyed beverages and goodies, practiced the carols, then visited hundreds of veterans in their wards. This page has the pictures and videos from 2014.
Please let me know if you have posted other videos and I'll include them on this page.

In the Hospice unit, a few of us singers had gone into the room of an elderly man (I think he was about 85), who could not speak but wrote on a slate. Someone asked him what branch of the service he had been in, and he wrote Navy. So I started up Anchors Aweigh, and we several singers sang it lustily (even though a Christmas song was going on outside--). I think he liked it. -- Nancy
The Schmit family really enjoyed getting to sing and greet our veterans. We were especially touched by Jim and Ester, just two of the veterans we were able to greet in person.
One of the singers saw a vet sitting in the corner at one of our stops. When we sang "Thank-You for Your Service," tears welled up in his eyes. It was obvious that our gratitude touched him.
