WHAT'S NEW? Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday! Make sure to celebrate by giving back to your community!
WEEK AT A GLANCE This week we have our weekly Wednesday Workout and our monthly virtual Ballantyne Breakfast. See you there!
ICYMI Last week we announced that due to the rising number of COVID cases, we have decided to cancel all in person, indoor events through the end of the year. This excludes the Wednesday Workout because there is sufficient outdoor space to spread-out and keep everyone safe and healthy!
STAT OF THE WEEK 1194. That is the number of housing and shelter cases we have had this year. That is 30% of our total cases! You can see more data like this by scrolling down to our Veteran Services section and checking out our year-to-date impact report each week.
EVENT HIGHLIGHT Have you been to one of our virtual Ballantyne Breakfasts yet? Log in Thursday morning and join us for some lively conversation over coffee!

VA PLANS FOR VACCINE DISTRIBUTION UNCLEAR AS CORONAVIRUS CASES CONTINUE TO CLIMB As the number of coronavirus cases among Veterans Affairs patients continues to climb, lawmakers are questioning whether department officials have clear plans to deal with both the current outbreak and distribution of a vaccine if it becomes available.

TIME RUNNING OUT ON ONE VETERAN'S PUSH FOR VA REFORMS When lawmakers return to Capitol Hill from Thanksgiving break, they’ll have a host of major legislative hurdles to face, including a possible federal shutdown in early December, a controversial defense policy bill facing a presidential veto, and a path ahead on pandemic relief for the entire country.
CAROLINA IMPACT: HOMELESS VETERAN TELLS HIS STORY A veteran who has served his country and finds himself homeless - his story and his advice.

Last week we asked about everyone's favorite Thanksgiving dish. Last place was a two-way tie at 8.7% for mashed potatoes and green bean casserole, next was 10.9% for pumpkin pie, 19.6% for dressing/stuffing, 23.9% for turkey, and the winner for favorite dish was leftovers at 28.3%!

Now that Thanksgiving is over it's time to get back in shape!
What is your excuse for not attending the Wednesday Workout this week?
Too early
Too far
Too lazy
Swore off PT after the military
No more excuses! I'll be there! (Probably)
