This morning to celebrate our Resident Veterans we had a Veterans Day Ceremony.
We sang patriotic songs, shared stories and took time to remember those Veterans who are no longer with us.
Thank you to San Carlos Boy Scout Troop 321 for helping us put together a beautiful program for our Resident.
Thank you to the American Legion Auxiliary District 8, Unit 510 for making and donating poppy corsages for our Veteran spouses, flag pins with ribbon and poppies for everyone.
Thank you to all our Veterans each and everyday!
Troop 321 lead the Resident in patriotic songs.
During the "Armed Forces Medley" we had Residents and Visitors stand for their branch of service.
Army was the most popular today.
At 100 years young Bob Chamness was proud to stand for the Navy.
Activity Director, Kathleen signed "I am Proud to be an American" song.
Troop 321 had a very talented bugle player.

Residents stopped and thanked him for sharing his talent with them.
At 11:11am he played "Star Spangle Banner" out in front of San Carlos Elms.
Don Pettengill shared his mementos and stories with us today.
Thanks again to Troop 321 and their parents for making this a memorable day for our Residents.
