Honoring an American Hero

Our Columbus Hospice We Honor Veterans Program honored this gentleman at his home surrounded by family.  He wanted to wear his dress blues for the pinning ceremony.  1SG (Ret) McCrady was explaining the significance of each medal he was wearing as I took this picture.   A true hero - he was a Vietnam POW on two separate occasions.

He wanted to stand when we recognized his service to our country.  He was tearful and stated when he returned back to the states - he never received a thank you. 

The We Honor Veteran's program allows us to gratefully acknowledge these heroes among us.
