Recognizing and honoring veterans at the end-of-life is an integral part of our hospice care. Heartland Home Health and Hospice serving Northeastern Wisconsin joined members from The American Legion Post 63 Veterans Memorial in Clintonville, WI to celebrate the 102nd birthday of the American Legion.
Commander Dan Rindt, a five-year Army Veteran, honored the momentous birthday at the Post 63 monthly meeting. During the meeting, he also presented Dori Sterkenburg, account liaison, with a certificate of appreciation for her outstanding service and assistance as a community partner. “Partnering with Post 63 gives me the opportunity to speak with community-minded veterans who are passionate about being involved,” Dori said. “It also allows me to share more about how Heartland serves veterans through our involvement in the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s We Honor Veterans (WHV) Program.”
Dan shared that the mission of Post 63 aligns with that of the national organization – serving veterans and the community in need. “We have a focus on Americanizing programs for children and the community,” said Dan. “We provide transportation for veterans to doctor appointments along with other places they made need to travel. We also offer scholarships for college, bereavement for widows, attend fellow veterans’ funerals and provide Memorial Day and Veterans Day programs.” Dan is proud of the ways Post 63 has been able to live the mission of the Legion.
