VIRTUAL BATTLE BUDDY until we can once again visits our VETERANS in person

We have many patients who are veterans and we would like to have volunteers who are veterans visit them. You would be assigned a veteran to visit. Weekly phone visits of about 1 hour or less is typically what is needed to establish a connection and provide support to your battle buddy. Veterans will often not open up to civilians (even family members) but they will to other veterans. Battle Buddies provide our veterans with a much needed friend, someone who understands.

In addition, we provide specialized Ceremonies to our veterans as a way of honoring the service they gave to our country. Battle Buddies will gather information on the veterans service so we can read it at the ceremony. We also have special lapel pins and certificates for the veteran which the volunteer can present. We are currently providing virtual ceremonies. This is a great way to honor veterans.

Veterans often need other Veterans to talk with, they understand the language and provide a "safe place" to discuss issues. Please consider sharing your time with our veterans. They served us, let's serve them.

Please contact me at Capital Caring, kknoble@capitalcaring.org or 703-333-6958. Thank you!
