Veterans Day Virtual Ceremony

In 2020, VITAS is bringing all of the elements of a traditional Veterans Day celebration—the flags, patriotic songs, somber moments of reflection, and inspiring ceremonies of recognition—into the virtual environment.

We are humbled by veterans’ individual bravery and inspired by their collective greatness. This year in particular, on the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, we want them to enjoy the recognition they deserve as safely as possible.

Just as VITAS provides individualized end-of-life care to our veteran patients, we invite others to let the veterans in your family, community, and care facility know how much you appreciate them and their service to our country.

By recognizing the unique needs of veterans who are coping with advanced illness, VITAS can guide these men and women toward a more peaceful ending. This is especially important for veterans who experienced combat or other trauma, particularly if unaddressed experiences, memories or emotions resurface near the end of life.
