'Welcome Home' event set for Friday at VA


WALLA WALLA — The Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial Veterans Affairs Medical Center will host a “Welcome Home” event on Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Open to all area veterans, the day serves as a tribute to the service returning soldiers have provided, said Linda Wondra, public affairs officer.

On the VA campus, veterans will have access to a number of informational sites. Organizations will be on hand to work with and help veterans, including job-finding help and staff from Walla Walla Vet Center.

Food and music will be featured, along with activities, crafts, and games for children. Parking is available in the lower-level ball field lot and shuttle services will be available for anyone needing assistance getting to the parade grounds.
