JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - A new nationwide initiative called a “Summer of Service” seeks the help of citizens in Mississippi to create and build partnerships to grow the number of individuals and organizations serving Veterans here.

The G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center is renewing its commitment to Veterans by inviting the community to visit and explore opportunities to serve Veterans during an open house at the medical center on July 1, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The VA Medical Center is located at 1500 E. Woodrow Wilson Drive in Jackson.

“While there is more work to do to honor our commitment to Veterans, we also recognize that VA cannot do it alone. We are asking Americans everywhere to join the Summer of Service and help us give back to those who have given so much to our nation,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald. 

In the coming weeks, the VA Medical Center will be working closely with Congressional partners, Veterans service organizations, mayors and local communities, private sector and non-profit organizations, and VA employees to identify new and innovative ways to support VA's commitment to care for those who “have borne the battle” and their families.
