Journey Hospice, a non-profit provider of hospice and palliative care services, holds various veteran recognition events throughout South Jersey each year. Executive Director, Darlene Thurber, explains, “We travel the state to meet extraordinary veterans in nursing homes and veteran facilities, to hear their stories, say ‘thank you,’ and celebrate their service with a special pinning ceremony. We also share free resources, provide educational opportunities, as well as host veteran café events for local veterans to socialize and reminisce. It is part of our commitment to helping create a fulfilling life’s journey for those we serve.”
