Today's State Employee at MVH-Mexico is Patrick, Director of Nursing Services. His supervisor states: Patrick serves MVH-Mexico as the Director of Nursing Services. Patrick puts in countless hours of work for the Veterans, Staff, and Facility. He is always willing to step up and has passion for his position. During COVID you could find Patrick working in many capacities and on all shifts. He shows strength in commitment and work ethic.

Patrick likes working at MVH-Mexico because: "My father and both older brothers were in the military. I opted to go the college route, but for the longest time. . . I held reservations for not serving my country as they had done. Working at the VA, and “serving those who have served” has indeed provided a sense of fulfillment as it pertains to serving my Country. "

Happy Flag Day!
Both President Wilson, in 1916, and President Coolidge, in 1927, issued proclamations asking for June 14 to be observed as the National Flag Day. But it wasn't until August 3, 1949, that Congress approved the national observance, and President Harry Truman signed it into law.

Happy Birthday to the U.S. Army!
