September is Fruits and Veggies—More Matters Month! A good way to meet your daily recommended fruit and veggie servings is to fill at least ½ of your plate with a variety of fruits and vegetables every day. To learn more about increasing fruits and veggies ask your primary care/PACT team for a referral to a Registered Dietitian at your VA facility. http://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/September+is+Fruits+%26+Veggies--More+Matters+Month

Ending Veteran homelessness sounds like a campaign promise that could never be kept, but VA is actually doing it. http://1.usa.gov/1JLdmDK
What is a CRRC? It's a lifeline for thousands of homeless Veterans and their families. VA and local communities are partners in the effort, working together to provide needed services.

70 years ago today Japan surrendered to Allied forces aboard the USS Missouri, effectively ending WWII. While the world had already celebrated in August when the surrender was announced, it wasn’t until this day that the Japanese Instrument of Surrender was signed finally sending home our brave service men and women after more than three years of total war.

Today in 1939 Germany invaded Poland, effectively starting WWII. Though U.S. forces would not join the battle until 1941 when Pearl Harbor was bombed by Japan, the US entrance swung the tide of the battle as "the greatest generation" defended the world from tyranny.
