Daughters Bonnie Blume and Debora Adkins drove there, and were able to take a tour of the first and third floors and visit with some veterans.  The veterans are from all branches of the service and currently include six woman veterans and 36 veterans of WWII.  The Troy Chapter of DAR also gave a monetary donation to the Veterans Home in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  

In December, the Troy Chapter sends care packages to active service members and makes donations to one or more Veterans Homes.
