We Salute Veterans

November 08 2020
An American flag.
Words cannot express our appreciation of those who served our country. This Veteran’s Day at Watermark communities coast to coast, we continue our commitment to recording the advice, life lessons and video interviews of our veterans in residence. We welcome veterans, their families and friends to join us for our Veteran’s Day observations and upcoming events and gatherings. Just give us a call and ask for a schedule. We look forward to thanking you in person.

This week we will be honoring our veterans for their services by acknowledging them during several events. The first is during our Happy Hour on Thursday, November 8th with patriotic songs and red, white & blue refreshments. The second is with a Sunday Brunch on November 11th. Tables will be decorated with the American flag and red, white & blue treats will be served for all to enjoy. Lastly, we will be presenting Certificates of Recognition during lunch on Monday, November 12th and a special decorated cake with the American flag will be served. We came across a very nice poem written by Ashley Persyn and found it so powerful that we wanted to share it with all of you. 

Freedom is not Free By Ashley Persyn There is a price we pay for freedom For it is not truly free But rather paid for by the contributions of veterans To buy our liberty As their blood drains from their body and runs like a river through the grass Over the years it's forgotten, war is placed in our past I don't think we all realize the importance veterans play as they voluntarily serve America each and every day We should honor the veterans for they act like a shield Protecting us from danger, keeping America healed So if you would take a second to commemorate You will instantly see We owe veterans our gratitude For they are the reason we are free
