Members of WVU's ROTC program were at the Mapleshire Nursing and Rehab Center in Morgantown Thursday to honor and thank our local veterans.
Hospice Care Corporation teamed up with cadets from the ROTC, who placed American flag pins on the veterans and gave them certificates of appreciation.
After leaving the Golden Living Center and Sundale Nursing Home, the group headed to Mapleshire. Cadets said it really means something to them to show vets that they respect and care about what they did for our country.
"Honestly it's an honor and it's very humbling. Throughout the school year and during the normal training day I think it's easy for us to forget how patriotic people really are and how much our program and the things we do really mean to them," said Laura Arnold, a 1st Lt. Cadet.
About 50 veterans were honored at those facilities.
