In recognition of Vietnam War Veterans Day on March 29, Care Dimensions will premiere a virtual “Welcome Home” ceremony that honors veterans of the Vietnam War era. The video features U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA), who served four tours in Iraq as a Marine Corps infantry officer.
The video will air at noon on Monday, March 29, on CareDimensions.org/Vietnam2021 and as a Facebook Video Premiere event at https://www.facebook.com/CareDimensions/. It will be posted to the website and Facebook pages after the premiere for viewing at any time.
As a Level 5 partner in the We Honor Veterans program, Care Dimensions developed and produced the ceremony to recognize and address the needs of veterans. The We Honor Veterans (WHV) program was created by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to increase access to hospice care for veterans and to promote education and best practices for providing end-of-life care to veterans. Introduced in 2019, Level 5 is the highest level WHV partners can attain and includes yearly recertification and an added emphasis on serving the needs of Vietnam era veterans.
“Our ‘Welcome Home’ virtual ceremony pays special attention to those veterans who did not receive the greeting they deserved,” said President and CEO Patricia Ahern, RN, MBA, FACHE. “We thank all veterans for their sacrifice and service to our country and honoring our nation’s veterans includes supporting them throughout their entire lives.”
Please help us honor the Vietnam veterans in our community by sharing this information with your contacts who are veterans of the Vietnam War era.
