Alabama Christmas at VA facilities

Central Alabama VA held several tree-lighting ceremonies to spread holiday cheer for Veterans in Columbus, Georgia; and Tuskegee and Montgomery, Alabama.

One of the highlights of the ceremonies was the attendance of the Poydasheff family (pictured above) who were excited about the first tree-lighting ceremony at the recently opened clinic.

“I’m very proud to be a part of this,” said Rob Poydasheff, son of the late Col. Robert S. Poydasheff, for whom the clinic is named. “I love that VA is reaching out to take care of Veterans. I’ve seen several items under the tree that will help Veterans in need. I’m truly overwhelmed.”
