We Salute You
As a proud Level 3 partner of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) We Honor Veterans Program, Hospice at Home, a program of Caring Circle, strives to meet the unique needs of veteran patients at end of life. One important aspect of this program that we truly appreciate is when a veteran allows us to say “thank you” for their service to our country through our Hospice at Home Salutes our Veterans certificate presentations.
We recently had the honor of thanking Dale Jeffers, a Korean War Army veteran who was receiving services through Hospice at Home. In addition to his military service, Dale also served his community and his fellow local veterans in various capacities: as a member of the local Lions Club for 50 years, and as an active member of the local chapter of Lest We Forget, an organization that seeks to educate the public about the sacrifices that have been made by our service people over the course of American history. Having the opportunity to thank Dale for all that he has contributed to our community was truly a privilege.
On a beautiful morning just a week before Memorial Day, Dale Jeffers was joined in his home by his hospice team and three fellow members of Lest We Forget, two of whom are also Veteran volunteers with the Hospice at Home We Honor Veterans program. The official certificate presentation was presided over by Veteran volunteer Arden Pridgeon, who attends these ceremonies in his original WWII Army uniform.
Our Veteran population has given so much with minimal recognition for the sacrifices they have made. On behalf of a grateful nation and the staff and volunteers of Hospice at Home and Caring Circle we pay special tribute to you, Dale Jeffers, for your military service to America, and for advancing the hope of freedom and liberty for all. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to salute you.
