Our volunteers, local veterans, and citizens of Greenwood, SC, gathered to honor Frank Glenn, a Navy WWII veteran in hospice care with @PruittHealth. Frank served as an Aviation Technician during the war and made sure the Navy’s planes could fly. We’re all so grateful he and his fellow WWII veterans defeated the Nazi and Japanese tyrannies. During the ceremony, Frank received a handmade flag, patriotic quilt, and a Congressional Letter from @RefJeffDuncan The ceremony took place @Brookdale Senior Living. We are so impressed with the great turnout to celebrate Frank’s service. Our purpose was to remind him he’s not alone on his Last Patrol. We love seeing veterans in hospice render a final salute!
Fred Whisnant served his country as a US Army Medic during the Korean War. He is very proud of his service. Last Patrol volunteers visited Fred’s home and conducted an Honor Ceremony, during which he was recognized with several presentations, including a Congressional Letter from @RepRalphNorman. Fred is in the care of @Halycon Hospice.
Our mission is bringing friendships, honor ceremonies, and emergency assistance to veterans in hospice care. We want these dying veterans to know they are not forgotten. Fred is being visited weekly by one of our veteran volunteers.
