A set of bronze busts honoring U.S. military veterans will be dedicated Wednesday in the lobby of the Omaha VA Medical Center, according to a Department of Veterans Affairs press release.

The five busts — one each representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard — are being unveiled as part of the VA’s annual Salute to Veteran Patients Week, held Feb. 14 through this Saturday. The week has been observed at VA medical facilities each year around Valentine’s Day since 1978.

Donors of the busts are New Century Art Guild of Kimballton, Iowa, and Muller Design and Eurowood Cabinets Inc., both of Omaha, the press release said.

The event will begin at 1 p.m. Members of the public are invited to attend.
