MGH veterans, staff, families and friends gathered once again at the Wyndham Hotel Feb. 6 for the fifth annual Valentines for Veterans event hosted by the MGH Military Veteran Partners (MGH MVP). The crafters – including Cinzia Lobuono and Joe Walsh, both active MVP members – put their artistic feet forward to create valentines for veteran patients here at the MGH and at local VA hospitals. Annually, the week of Feb. 14 represents a national effort to recognize and thank the men and women of the United States armed services for their service.

The MVP is an interdepartmental group committed to serving and supporting the MGH’s active duty, reserve, former military and service member employees, as well as their families and external veteran community. The group welcomes all MGH employees and requires no prior military service. Email MGHVETpartners@partners.org to learn more.
