Raleigh, N.C. — Today, Congresswoman Deborah Ross (NC-02) visited the Raleigh Vet Center and the Raleigh III VA Clinic to deliver more than 3,000 handwritten Valentine’s Day Cards made by students throughout Wake County. She also delivered valentines to the U.S. Marshals who protect her Raleigh District Office every day, and her office delivered cards to the North Carolina National Guard and the Joel Fund in Wake Forest.

“Our veterans have put their lives on the line to defend our country and deserve to be recognized for their service and sacrifice,” said Congresswoman Ross. “These valentines are just a small token of our appreciation for North Carolina’s veterans. I am so thankful for all the students throughout Wake County who contributed and made such thoughtful cards. We need to do everything we can to ensure our veterans always feel supported.”

The Raleigh Vet Center offers confidential support and health services to veterans, service members, and their families and also has a mobile unit that travels throughout the state to provide support to North Carolina’s veterans. The Raleigh III VA Clinic provides primary care, mental health resources, women’s health care, and telehealth services to approximately 6,000 veterans.
