On November 11, Americans throughout the world will commemorate Veterans Day to thank our nation's veterans for service given and sacrifices made to protect the freedoms of this nation. In conjunction with more than a thousand Veterans & Family Memorial Care (VFMC) Providers nationwide, Walton's Funerals & Cremations is sponsoring the VFMC Operation Sweaters for Veterans initiative throughout Northern Nevada and Susanville.

Now through Veterans Day, November 11, Walton's is collecting new or gently used sweaters and gloves, which will be delivered to the Homeless Veterans Outreach Program and other veterans service organizations. "This is just one small way we can support our heroes, and we're honored to do our part," said Tammy Dermody, owner of Walton's.
