New Wi-Fi Access, Day Room

TDVA had a busy month this November, we were finally able to provide hi speed internet access to the Day Room at the Spinal Cord Unit. This Area is private in nature and is a place for loved ones and patients to go and relax, watch TV, and play games. Paralyzed Veterans of America has a computer in this location and now they have Wi-Fi access.

Comfort Program Donation

TDVA Donated $1,000.00 to the Comfort Program today at San Antonio's Veterans Administrative Volunteer Services (VAVS). This program provides items that we so often take for granted. Some of the items are:  tooth brushes, tooth paste, dental floss and tote bags personal hygiene items, razors, shampoo, and body wash, also bus tickets for Homeless Veterans to get to and from their appointments. We at TDVA applaud all those involved in helping to make this happen. It’s our way of giving back to those that have given so much.
