We are building a tribute page with photographs, biographies, remembrances, and reflections of the Veterans who died from COVID-19 while residents of the Soldiers' Home in Holyoke during the 2020 pandemic. Our Coalition’s goal is to verify the names of all Veterans who died from, or contracted COVID-19 though care received at the Soldiers’ Home; and to have as complete a list as possible for future community remembrances and ceremonies that honor their lives and military service.
If you are a family member of a Veteran who died from COVID-19 while under the care of the Soldiers' Home in Holyoke during the coronavirus pandemic, and you would like to list your loved one's name and would like to contribute photos and information for this page, please write to us at HolyokeSoldiersHomeCoalition@gmail.com.
While this page is under construction, we recommend the following Associated Press feature, which pays tribute to the Veterans of the Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke.
