Just because you’re single for Valentine’s Day this year doesn’t mean you can’t show yourself some love. Check out our top five ways to celebrate without a romantic date.
Visit A Vet
The VA Maryland Health Care System encourages young and old to volunteer in its annual Visit a Vet for Valentine’s Day program. Held Feb. 13-19, the program coincides with Valentine’s Day, connecting “the holiday’s sentiments of caring and sharing to expressing honor and appreciation to veterans for their sacrifice and service.”– Dennis H. Smith, Director, VA Maryland Health Care System
