Early honors for honored veterans

SRC celebrates residents

Posted

The Senior Resource Center got an early start on celebrating Memorial Day this year, with a flag pinning ceremony of veteran residents on May 11. 

"This is an opportunity for us to pause and reflect on those who have walked this path before," said Libby Bodell, senior activities coordinator at the resource center. 

About 25 residents were recognized at the event, organized with the assistance of All Veteran Funeral and Cremation. All the veterans received a certificate from retired 1st. Sgt. Reggie Barrett and received a pin from 1st Sgt. Margarita Douglas. 

There was plenty of gratitude to go around, with lots of "thank you for your service" and respect for time protecting the country.

"This is all very, very much appreciated," said Ron Hilton, who served in the Coast Guard.
