JoCo Marines Visit Veterans At VA Hospital

Local Veterans made their quarterly trip to Durham on Tuesday to visit the Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

A group from the Johnston County Marine Corps League Carry-On Detachment 1236 visits the Durham VA once every 3 months to host a bingo game for Veterans from all branches of the Armed Forces. The local group also brings prayer shawls to thank them for their service and most importantly to let them know they are not forgotten.
