Take a Message

Had the occasion to call the local VA Center today and gulped at the sober reminder of the war at home -- courtesy of the automated greeting on the other end of the phone.

Thank you for calling the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

If this is a medical emergency, please hang up and dial 911. To reach the Suicide Prevention Hotline, please hang up and dial, 1-800-273-8255.
