David Rose and Willis Murray of Alachua were recently recognized for their military service by Haven Hospice Veteran Volunteers. Rose served in the United States (U.S.) Army for 22 years before retiring. During his time in the U.S. Army, Rose worked in security and went on to establish his own security business after retirement from the military. Murray served in the U.S. Air Force for nine years during the Korean War. The Haven Hospice Pinning Ceremony for veteran patients also includes a veteran pin, a thank you card signed by the staff and a certificate of appreciation from Haven Hospice which are all presented by volunteer veterans. Veterans were also presented with a red, white and blue blanket knitted by a volunteer and donated to Haven in memory of her granddaughter, Jordon Elmore. The presentation ends with a salute to honor the veteran’s service.
