With the American Pride Program at Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice, Veterans receive benefits and support that acknowledges their services and sacrifice. By recognizing the unique needs of our nation’s Veterans who are facing a life-limiting illness, Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice is able to accompany and guide Veterans and their families towards a more peaceful ending. We can help assure access to all the benefits to which a Veteran is eligible, provide spiritual support and address individual post-traumatic stress issues. Through participation in Veteran pinning ceremonies, special observances and celebrations, we celebrate the lives of Veterans and honor their contributions. We were among the first in the country to achieve national recognition from the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and Department of Veterans Affairs as part of the We Honor Veterans program.
The American Pride Veteran Memorial at the Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton Hospice House, 324 Wilmington Avenue in Dayton, is a moving commemoration that includes a computer kiosk that features pictures and stories about Veterans.
By clicking here, community members can enter their own stories or stories about loved ones and upload photos of Veterans to honor their lives and service. All stories submitted will be accessible online and on display at the American Pride Veteran Memorial. The stories are searchable by name. Any Veteran in Ohio is eligible to be included.
