RiverView Senior Resort honored its veteran residents with the unveiling of a Wall of Honor during a July 3 ceremony. The Wall includes a patriotic mural painted by local artist Amy McIntosh, images of residents who have served in the United States military and a framed American flag.

The ceremony included the presentation of colors by the American Legion Post 117 Honor Guard and a speech by RiverView Memory Care Coordinator and retired Air Force Airman First Class Heather Dawson. Veteran’s benefits attorney Amy B. Van Fossen offered advice to veterans looking to maximize their VA benefits.

“Part of our mission at RiverView is to celebrate the lives and contributions of our residents, including military service,” said Tracy Woodburn, RiverView Senior Resort executive director. “What better way to celebrate our veterans than to have a permanent tribute to those who served in the United States military.”

In addition to honoring its residents, RiverView Seniors Resort has offered discounts to veterans, retired first responders and retired law enforcement. For information, call 321-312-4555.
