During National Volunteer Week, the Miami VA Healthcare System (MVAHS) took the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the most deserving group of fellow citizens; those who give tirelessly of themselves to build a better community and a better nation. The men, women, and young people who volunteer their time and energy to care for America’s patriots ‐‐ our Veterans.

We couldn’t provide the high quality of service and support for our Veterans without them. More than just devoting time to a cause, our
volunteer’s work demonstrates a commitment to our mission to improve the well being of our Veterans.

Day in and day out we see our volunteers in the hallways, clinics and wards, stepping forward to fill a need. That need may be simply listening to a patient who is having a bad day or sitting with a patient who is hard of hearing to help him listen to his name being called in the waiting room. It doesn’t take a medal or a pin to make a volunteer’s day; a smile and sincere thank‐you from a VA employee goes a long way in recognizing countless hours of dedication.

Joseph Moldon, Rockelle Smith, Robert Speeler, and Armonia Gejo were awarded the President’s Lifetime Award. Ms. Gejo, also received a special Volunteer Shining Star Award for going above‐and‐beyond in assisting Voluntary Service with special projects throughout the year.
