May is for remembering our Veterans
At the end of May on Memorial Day, families take time to remember loved ones, and call special attention to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country. The origin of Memorial Day dates back to 1868, when people set aside a day each spring to pay homage to the soldiers who had lost their lives in the Civil War.
Here at Aberdeen Heights, we likewise want to acknowledge our Veteran residents who braved danger home and abroad, serving their country proudly.
Health Care resident Charles Clayton spent four years in the Navy during the Korean war. His grandsons have all followed in his footsteps - and have carried on the family tradition of serving in the United States military.
Be sure to take a few moments to thank Charles - as well as our other Veterans - for their dedication to our freedom and for defending the United States, yesterday and today.
