This year at Parkview in Frisco, we held an outstanding ceremony recognizing all of our veterans, both men and women. To open the event, a group of decorated veterans performed the Honor Guard and Color Guard, followed by a warm welcome from Trudy Turner. Resident Jeff Evans lead everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by Norris Perry leading the audience in singing the national anthem. Jeff offered a prayerful invocation, after which resident Shirley Pope introduced our speaker, Joseph Romero, Jr., USMC/USNR (shown below with Frank Leroux). After Mr. Romero’s memorable speech, each veteran was called by name to receive a special plaque in recognition of their service. The event ended with everyone singing “God Bless America”.
