Health System to Host Veterans Day Recognition Programs

In honor of the men and women who have served our country through military service, Southeast Georgia Health System will host a Veterans Day Recognition on Monday, November 11, from 3-4 p.m.on the Brunswick and Camden campuses. The events will include select readings of letters to Veterans, guest speakers, recognition of Veterans in attendance, Corps Color Guard presentation of colors, and patriotic music. 
 
The celebrations, which are free and open to the public, will take place at the Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus, 2000 Dan Proctor Drive, St. Marys. The Brunswick Campus celebration will be held at the Senior Care Center-Brunswick at 2611 Wildwood Drive. Attendees are welcome to wear their uniforms and share military memorabilia.
 
In addition to the recognition program, greeting cards will be available for attendees to participate in the Holiday Mail for Heroes program. The personalized greeting cards will be delivered to the American Red Cross for distribution to military installations, Veterans hospitals, and other locations in time for Christmas delivery.
 
With a special focus on military appreciation, Veterans Day is a celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve for the common good. Unlike Memorial Day, which honors those in the military who died in service to their country or as a result of injuries incurred during battle, Veterans Day pays tribute to all veterans - especially to living veterans who served their country during war or peacetime.
