In 2010, a published statistic by the Department of Veteran Affairs determined that only 20% of hospitalized Veterans receive visitors and/or gifts while within VA Medical Centers. Due to this overwhelming majority, several Veterans had become untrusting and scared of these facilities in the fear of being forgotten.
Second Brigade MC decided to host a variety of Veteran dinners across the country to not only remind these brave Men and Women that they are not forgotten, but also give them a small taste of home. A full holiday-style meal is provided, raffles are held, funds and time donated and several stories are exchanged amongst all who attend. Throughout the years we have seen tremendous growth in the support for these dinners but even more excitement and joy filling the hearts of all supported Veterans as they eagerly await the next dinner.
