Help To Remember & Honor Veterans

Contributed By: Activities Coordinator Courtney

Many seniors were veterans of the U.S. armed services and/or related to veterans. In their younger days, they lived through World War II, the Korean conflict and the Viet Nam War. Veteran's Day typically has deep felt, personal meaning for them. We suggest striving to help them remember and honor those who were close to them and sacrificed for us all. This year, our arts and crafts group painted red poppies to display throughout Bel Air Assisted Living. These flowers are the national emblem of remembrance. To learn more about the interesting and sad origins of this emblem, click on "The WWI Origins of the Poppy as a Remembrance Symbol." (A article.)
