VERO BEACH, Fla., Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida House of Representatives Chris Latvala made a special visit to Market Street Memory Care Residence East Lake in Tarpon Springs, Florida to honor the service of resident veterans and veteran spouses.
With a nostalgic display of vintage military uniforms setting the stage for the day's events, family, friends, and residents gathered for the opening Veterans Day ceremony with a patriotic musical celebration. The crowd then bowed their heads in respectful silence for the National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance before Representative Latvala addressed attendees.
Each resident veteran of Market Street East Lake was recognized individually by Representative Latvala and presented with a handmade door decoration with their name and branch of service. Spouses of veterans were thanked for their sacrifice and presented with a poppy corsage.
