Buddy Checks
One of the best things to come out of the COVID-19 Pandemic is “Buddy-Checks”.  Calling our older and more infirm veterans just to make sure they are okay and see if they need anything, or just to talk is a simple and effective way to brighten someone’s day and do your part.  Eventually, this pandemic will end, hopefully “Buddy-Checks” will go on.
