Yesterday, Emmanuel Hospice hosted a beautiful pinning ceremony for August Steffes, Jr., one of its patients who is a U.S. Navy veteran.
Emmanuel Hospice offers a ceremony to all its patients who are veterans as a formal thank you for their service. Each event is customized to meet the needs and wishes of every individual.
During his ceremony, Steffes received a special veteran pin, a certificate recognizing his Navy service and a star from a retired American flag. The event also included music, a prayer reading and a hot dog cookout with his loved ones and members of his hospice care team.
