Norma Morgan is the Kansas City VA Medical Center’s longest running volunteer.  “I think we need to pay respect all we can to these veterans, “ says Morgan, who has been volunteering at the medical center since 1964.

Norma recalls the boys in her home town being shipped off to serve in World War II and how the whole town of Powersville Missouri turned out to see them off and then again to welcome them home.  Growing up in a patriotic environment is part of what gave Norma the initiative to serve as a volunteer in many roles, including rolling bandages for surgery, mending pajamas and escorting patients to the chapel.

Norma still volunteers every week in admissions and at least once per month hosting bingo for the patients on 10 West with her VFW Auxiliary.   During her 47 years as a KCVA volunteer, Norma has worked the equivalent of more than 9 years of full-time work.  Commenting on her volunteerism, Norma says she has, “been everywhere and done everything.  If they need me, they need me.”

KCVA is always seeking new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please click here for more information.
