WPAFB Airmen Visit Dayton VAMC to Distribute Valentines to Veterans

What: Dayton, OH — Love is in the air at the Dayton VA Medical Center (VAMC). Under the leadership of Colonel Barlow and Chief Mazza, Airmen from Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) will be visiting the Dayton VAMC on Valentine’s Day (February 14, 2013) at 1:00 PM to pass out Valentines to the hospitalized Veterans.
