There’s no Spring Fling 2020 after seven consecutive years of having the event, but let’s enjoy this photo from Fling ’19 last May.

Friends of the Soldiers Home has been unable to see our veteran friends at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in person since February. We miss them terribly. But there is good news! As of April 30, there have been zero reported cases of Covid-19 at the Soldiers Home!

There’s more good news — we have an opportunity to send our veteran friends video messages of support for National Armed Forces Day on May 16th. Record a greeting no longer than 1 minute in length and email it to Marine.robbin(at)afrh.gov by Monday May 11. Tell our veteran friends you miss them and wish them good health, or any other positive message you want to send during these difficult times. Our wonderful children can add their smiling faces and beautiful voices as well. Friends of the Soldiers Home has been unable to bring the community and veterans together in our usual, physical way, but we are excited to send our love virtually!
