Participating veterans will be picked up from their home and taken to the closest 20x bus stop (either the Robert Morgade Library, or US1 and Bridge Road), to board the bus to the VA Medical Center. Upon return from the VA Medical Center, the veteran will be picked up from the same bus stop and then returned home.
