Veterans attending the Community Nurses Adult Day Services program were honored on Veterans Day.
Elk County Veterans Affairs Office Director Leslie Neal presented each of them with an American flag which was flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. along with a certificate of appreciation and an American flag pin. Kathy Renaud, LPN, Community Nurses Adult Day Services director said while the adult day center honors their veterans each year, this was the first time they were presented with American flags.
