UVS to Celebrate 77th Anniversary

United Veterans Services will celebrate its 77th Anniversary this year.  One of the highlights will be the dedication of the new fieldhouse at the VA Menlo Park facility which will include honoring Helen Lengfeld who started United Veterans Services (formally known as United Voluntary Service).  

Ms. Lengfeld’s efforts in the 40’s and 50’s was to establish a group of dedicated men and women whose mission was to "Build a Bridge of Service" between hospitals and the community.  A group from United Veterans Services and Ms. Lengfeld’s granddaughter, Dede, recently met to exchange information and pictures about Helen to ensure the dedication ceremony and displays highlight all of Ms. Lengfeld’s accomplishments.
