Veterans Day Pinning Ceremony

In honor of Veterans Day, we have teamed up with IU Hospice along with New Hope Hospice, Southern Care Hospice,  and Vitas Hospice in partner with the We Honor Veterans Program to host a pinning ceremony to honor our nation’s heroes on Sunday, November 10th at 2:00 p.m. in the Crown Hill Memorial Chapel. Veterans are invited along with family and friends to attend. We are proud to have State Representative Karlee Macer and Brigadier General, USAF (Ret) J. Stewart Goodwin as our featured speakers.

The Meaning of the Pinning Ceremony:19233945/clipart.com

A pinning ceremony is meant to acknowledge the service of the Veteran along with the sacrifices made by the Veteran and their family. The pinning ceremony not only honors the Veteran but their family members as well. The ceremony allows Veterans to share part of their story with others; a story that sometimes not even family members and close friends are aware of.

We hope all Veterans along with the families and friends will join us on Sunday, November 10th to take part in this moving ceremony. Following the ceremony, we will proceed to the Field of Valor and then regroup in the Crown Hill Celebration Hall for refreshments.
