May is Public Service Recognition Week and Military Appreciation Month

During the month of May, I have the opportunity to thank all WDVA Team Members during our state’s annual Public Service Recognition Week.

At WDVA we take our mission of Serving Those Who Served very seriously. Many of our team members are Veterans, spouses, or family members so we feel a personal connection to the people and communities we serve each day!

From our Veterans Services & Counseling and Wellness Programs to our Veterans Homes, Cemetery, and administrative support functions, I am proud of the innovative programs we offer and the professional and compassionate team that delivers them.

Our WDVA Team adds value to public service, and I want to take the opportunity to share my appreciation to their commitment to serving Veterans and their Families!

May also marks Military Appreciation Month, and on behalf of the entire WDVA, we also want to appreciate and thank military public service by reminding them to connect with their earned benefits and the many available programs and services available through your Washington Department of Veterans Affairs.
