ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY – As part of National Salute to Veteran Patients Week, some familiar faces visited the local VA hospital.

The Pittsburgh Pirate Parrot and Al Tuna visited the Van Zandt Medical Center Wednesday afternoon.

The goal is to honor veterans and increase community awareness about Veterans Affairs’ role in providing medical care to the Veterans’ community.

Members from the Johnstown Tomahawks will visit later this month.
