Veterans' Day

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, more than 50 percent of nursing home residents have no close relatives, and 46 percent have no living children. These two facts are a major reason why an estimated 60 percent of nursing home residents never have visitors. If you're looking for ways to honor veterans, I recommend taking an afternoon or two out of each month and visiting a VA nursing home. Here's a list of VA nursing homes in Oklahoma and Texas:
