About

We are looking for a few good Men and Women who have served or are currently in the military. We have an opportunity for you to perform an honorary pinning ceremony for fellow veterans. Our veteran patients are waiting to be honored by another veteran. Please help us recognize those that have allowed us the freedom that we enjoy today. Many of our patients have served in the Vietnam, Korean or WW2 and would like to share their stories with other service members.

  • Offer unique opportunities that support life review and healing
