Our veterans followed their marching orders for us, now lets march for them.

LOMA LINDA, CALIF – The VA Loma Linda Healthcare System will host a “Welcome Home” event at its flagship facility, the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Veterans Medical Center, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23.

During the event, the VA will offer same-day registration and physical examinations to veterans not yet enrolled in VA health care.

Other representatives from a variety of VA programs will be on hand to take questions about veteran’s benefits, including claims processing, women’s health, readjustment, and more.

Reservations are not necessary but interested veterans may call (909) 583-6305 to learn more about the program.

Anyone who receives an in-take physical examination will be entered in a drawing to win a 60-inch television. The drawing will be held at 3 p.m. and the individual must be present to win.
