Potomac Chapter's Gold Star Wives Visit DC's VA Nursing Home

Last week, several members of the Potomac Chapter of the Gold Star Wives visited the VA Nursing Home here in Washington DC to meet with the residents and offer them our friendship and support.

From left to right:  Helga Knapp, Stephanie Burns (Director for Volunteers at the VA Medical Center), Siobhan Esposito, Ella Delisio, Karen Butler (Programs Clerk at the VA Medical Center) and Hildegard Hatcher.

This event was organized by Potomac Chapter member Ella Delisio and included chapter members Helga Knapp and Hildegard Hatcher. In addition to meeting with the veterans, our chapter members passed out gift certificates to the veterans and made a $500 donation to the retirement home in furtherance of its mission.
