Open House for Vets

ESCANABA– Veterans also had a chance to check out one Upper Peninsula home that can help them out.

The VA Vets Center in Escanaba held their annual open house today starting at 11 a.m. They hoped this would be a celebration of the veterans and their service to our country. At the open house veteran, their families and the general public could hang out, eat and see what the center had to offer.

“The importance is to recognize and to let them know how appreciative we are for their service and to their families who have also provided support to them,” said Escanaba VA Vet center project manager Doreen Bender-Krachey
