VAIL VETERANS PROGRAM WELCOMES BACK SUMMER PARTICIPANTS
VAIL – After a two-year halt due to COVID-19 restrictions, summer programs are back for the vets participating in the Vail Veterans Program.

“Vail Veterans Program is thrilled to resume the 2022 Summer Family Program, along with our summer Family Support Programs.
