The OBVAMC’s history dates back to the mid-1940s, but its official dedication was Nov. 27, 1950. Renovations for the new lobby began in August 2015; it offers a more spacious atmosphere, new ceiling and flooring design, natural lighting, modern appeal and the Patriots Brew Café.

The ceremony begins at 10 a.m., Nov. 10, and Veterans are invited to attend. The OBVAMC staff honors all Veterans this Veterans Day and says “Every day is Veterans Day. Thank you for your service.”
