Department of Senior Affairs honors local veterans

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico veterans are being honored in a special way.

The Department of Senior Affairs has created a wall in the North Valley Senior Center to thank local veterans for their service. It includes the picture and story of local vets at senior and multi-generational centers.

It’s something the veterans are thankful for.

“This is something big, what the seniors are doing for the veterans, it’s a good thing we’re not forgotten,” said Veteran Leo Griego.

This is the sixth center in the city to get a wall of honor
