New Mexico Department of Veterans launches Operation Cheer

The New Mexico Department of Veterans Services is asking you to take part in “Operation Holiday Cheer” to bring season’s greetings to residents and staff of the New Mexico State Veterans Home in Tor C. Many residents have little contact with family—or no family at all. And many staff members work through the holidays, as the home provides year-round, round-the-clock care for residents. Cards sent to the home need only be addressed with “Dear Veteran”, “Dear Hero,” or “Dear Frontline Hero.” They should contain a short message of appreciation for the veteran’s military service. Cards to staff members can be addressed with, “Dear Frontline Hero”, or other terms of endearment, along with a brief message of appreciation for providing care for the home’s residents.

Cards should be mailed to:
