As of this post’s publish date, more than 2,400 veteran parents and parents-to-be have signed up to be a part of the a grand, sweeping nationwide baby shower that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is hosting (along with a few partners) at a select number of its medical facilities (about 60 total) across the country. According to them, it starts May 5 and runs all the way up and through Mother’s Day, May 13, to June 2.

This post will provide all the necessary links one needs to participate, and/or contribute to the shower.

Every vet mother and family signed up will receive a kit for their baby (like the one in the photograph above) that’ll include the following: a diaper bag, new baby toiletries, hair brush, comb set, bib, layette, blanket and a hat.
