Veterans line the wall in the dining room.

On Nov. 13, 2017, Life Care Center of Jefferson City, Tennessee, celebrated Veterans Day with the Daughters of American Revolution and the Jefferson County High School JROTC. 

 

Residents, their family members and community guests attended the celebration. Alexis Stone, with the JROTC, did a beautiful job singing the national anthem, and Lt. Col. Gregory Stephens, who is over the JROTC, led everyone in saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

“In our facility, we have 14 veterans who served in different branches – Army, Navy and Air Force,” said Angie Maddox, director of business development.

 

Billie Chambers, a short-term rehab patient, is a member of the Martha Dandridge Washington Chapter of National Society of the Daughters of American Revolution. She presented a certificate to each of the veterans.

 

Resident James Camp was presented with a pin and a certificate in special recognition of his double service in Vietnam War. He was recruited the first time and volunteered the second time.

 

“It was such an honor to be a part of this event,” said Camp. If I was able to go, I would serve my country again.”
