Veterans at Augusta Health and Rehabilitation were recognized and honored at a program on Friday!
All 7 of the Veterans, including 3 WWII Veterans, gathered in front of a large audience of their peers and community members!
Speaker Harry Bauer addressed the group with an inspirational message. The veterans were introduced; including Lee Sutton – Navy, Dean Claftin – Marine, Rick Knas – Army, George Stanek WW II Marine, George Mueller WWII Army Vet, Ken Kuhnert – Army, and Bob Zieman – WW II Navy Veteran.
Ninety-seven-year-old resident Ruby Spangberg gave a brief talk and performed a moving recitation of the poem “Flanders Field”. Norma Jeseritz performed on the piano as everyone sang GOD BLESS AMERICA together. Social Hour followed with more patriotic tunes by Norma, as the Veterans were greeted and thanked by the many people in attendance.
