"Our veterans have all sacrificed for the safety of our community, our families and our country," Matthew Moench said in the release. "The least we can do is spend a few hours of our time getting to know these heroes, and helping to lift their spirits as they have lifted the national spirit with their service."

Stephanie Moench said that National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week is a reminder to take responsibility to take care of veterans.

"I hope that by spending Monday morning at the Lyons VA, we can bring hope and joy to the veterans and inspire others to do so throughout the year," she said.

The purpose of the National Salute to Veteran Patients Program is to pay tribute and express appreciation for veterans, increase community awareness of the role of the VA medical center and encourage citizens to help out. The week of Feb. 14 is a chance to say thank you.
