A steak meal was prepared by our veteran nursing director, Pam Sumrall. The vets were presented a card and pin for their service. Deaconess HomeCare and Hospice presented certificates to the veterans as a way to pay special tribute for their military service to America and for advancing the universal hope of freedom and liberty for all.
Special guest, Shelli Kern, also known as the Singing Sparrow, entertained the residents in a special USO SHOW after lunch.
