Hammonton Center for Rehabilitation and Health Care Honors Veteran Residents and StaffLast Edited:
Veterans Day may be this weekend, but a local healthcare center decided to honor their veterans a little early.
On the afternoon of Monday, November 5th, Hammonton Center for Rehabilitation and Health Care, in Hammonton, held a special ceremony to honor and recognize all their residents and staff who served in the military.
Each veteran received an award thanking them for their service.
Officials say it was the least they could for those who have done so much for their country.
"These people have fought for our country for so long and for us to have the opportunity to thank them for all they've done is tremendous," said Eitan Nath, administrator at Hammonton Center for Rehabilitation and Health Care.
During the recognition ceremony, veterans and staff members sang the National Anthem and got to enjoy a bagpipe performance of various military songs.
There was also a flag ceremony in which a flag that flew over the United States capital was presented to the veterans.
