'The support means a lot to us veterans:' Carl Vinson VA Medical Center holds Fall Festival

The festival was supposed to happen last month, but was canceled due to the weather.

DUBLIN, Ga. — The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center in Dublin kicked off their Fall Festival on Saturday.

The festival was supposed to happen last month but was canceled due to the weather.

People showed up to grab some snacks, play games, and get information on resources the VA offers.

The Dublin VA has been holding its Fall Festival for over three decades, hoping to bring the community together to support local veterans.

Robert Theus is one of the veterans who enjoyed his first Fall Festival. He says he is grateful to have the community behind him.

“You know a lot of people thank me for my service, and I say thank you for your support,” Theus said. “So the support means a lot to us veterans, and it's a great thing. It's a great thing to have here in Dublin."

As Veterans Day approaches, the VA along with the city of Dublin have events planned to recognize and support veterans. One of the upcoming events is a parade on Nov. 9.
