Calendar error confuses veterans

If that 2014 Department of Veterans Affairs calendar looks fishy, it’s not just you.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that approximately 357,000 veterans received calendars that incorrectly listed Independence Day as occurring today, July 3. For patients at VA clinics, this proved particularly confusing as clinics are closed for the holiday.

According to the article, the error was overlooked by both the printer and the VA when it was sent out in late 2013.

Never fear: Friday, July 4 is still Independence Day. So save those firecrackers and sparklers for tomorrow!
