On Nov. 29, VA recognized its Red Coat Patient Ambassadors and volunteers. Red Coat Ambassadors greet and escort visitors and patients, offer information and directions, provide a listening ear and help find solutions to their concerns.

Red Coat Ambassadors wear a highly visible red coat or vest and greet veterans and escort visitors and family members. They provide a personal, yet standardized VA experience that includes assistance with navigation, helpful information and the necessary support to make their visit to VA not only successful, but also pleasant.

You can be a Red Coat Ambassador

Individuals who love helping others, have a positive personality, are able to navigate the VA campus and able to manage conflicts respectfully should contact the Voluntary Service Office at 203-937-3814 for more information on how to get involved.

Everyone can support the program by sharing information about the program with veterans who may benefit and individuals who may want to volunteer.
