Hi, I'm Vetalia. I'm a southern California transplant, originally from Iowa. For 15 years I worked for the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, where I gained a deep respect and appreciation for the service and sacrifices of America's veterans,current military personnel, and their families. For the last seven years I've worked for a nonprofit company as office manager at a daycare center for people with Alzheimer's and other dementias. As writer/editor of our monthly newsletter, I've researched and written many articles on various aspects of dementia and caregiving. My other interests include history, genealogy, personal history writing, religion - particularly Christianity, and patriotism.
