14: The Kyle/Buda VFW Post 12058 Ladies Auxiliary visited the Frank M. Tejada Texas State Veterans’ Home in Floresville, TX on Monday February, 13, 2011. This visit was in support of Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week. We brought gift bags for each resident. These bags included Valentine cards made by our Junior Girls Unit and their classmates in their schools, some sugar-free cookies and a piece of fruit. Nurses/attendants on duty when we met with the residents advised us as to who was able to have the food and who could not have those items. Joyce Dalton joined us at the Home and recited the pledge to the flag as delivered by Red Skelton. It was quite moving.
