Waveny Honors Veterans
Posted on November 13, 2012
Waveny Care Network recently celebrated our nation’s servicemen and women with a special Veteran’s Day event held on “Main Street” at The Village at Waveny Care Center. Waveny welcomed local veterans Richard Iannucci, Michael Bennedetto and Don Gels, in leading the Pledge of Allegiance, singing the national anthem and sharing stories of their individual military experiences. The numerous veterans among Waveny’s patients, residents, and Adult Day participants were recognized and thanked for their dedicated service as trumpeter, Don Gels, performed the anthem for each military branch.
