Legacy Village Of Cleveland Commemorates Veterans With ‘Wall Of Honor’

Friday, November 8, 2019

Legacy Senior Living commemorates more than 100 veterans with a “Wall of Honor” at each of its senior living and memory care communities across the Southeast. Legacy Village of Cleveland, a premier assisted living and memory care community in Cleveland, Tn., displays several residents who are veterans on their Wall of Honor. 

Each Wall of Honor features framed photos of residents, some also including their spouses, who have served in our nation’s armed forces, complete with placards sharing their name, branch of service and rank. 

"For those who served our country, we are proud to showcase them with the Wall of Honor. These photos on the wall are in recognition of the sacrifice and service of these amazing men and women,” said Barry Ray, CEO and co-founder of Legacy Senior Living. 

“They are a generation that inspires us to be better individuals and to serve them well,” said Bryan Cook, president and co-founder of Legacy Senior Living.

Legacy Village of Cleveland honors each resident veteran with their Wall of Honor. It seeks to intentionally recognize those who fought in wars that have shaped our country and maintained our freedom. 

“The respect, admiration and appreciation for the veterans who served our country contributing to the many blessings we all share today is with us every day. When I see the photos on our Wall of Honor, I am reminded that the same respect and appreciation is extended not only to those men and women, but also to their families who supported them and sacrificed for us as well,” said Jason Gibson, interim executive director of Legacy Village of Cleveland. 

Legacy Senior Living communities share the incredible stories of sacrifice of its residents and their spouses who served in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War through the Wall of Honor.

“We treasure all our residents, but are especially thankful and blessed by those who served our country in the military and, in some cases, fought in battles for the freedoms we all enjoy today,” said Mr. Ray. 

Legacy Village of Cleveland wants to express honor and respect for those veterans, and having the Wall of Honor is a way to show their families and all visitors their faithful service to our country.
