Special emphasis was made for the items to be distributed to the VietNam veterans who were in residence and those the VA classifies as homeless.\r\n\r\nJoLynn Ball presented the gifts to Cheryl A Yost, Voluntary Service Officer. Yost was very pleased to have the items. \u201cThe veterans will really appreciate these gifts on Christmas morning. It is nice knowing we can always depend on the women of the DAR,\u201d said Yost.
