Veterans honored

Community Hospice honored residents of Brookdale Senior Living of Salem on Nov. 15. Residents were pinned by Dave Crim and given an American flag which was previously flown over a veteran’s grave. Brookdale Salem honored 10 of its veterans to commemorate Veterans Day. A letter was given to each veteran from Congressman Bill Johnson expressing his gratitude for their selfless sacrifice that each veteran and their families gave to secure our freedom.
