Daniel “Shorty” Jones was recently recognized for his military service by Haven Volunteer Robin McCracken of the United States (U.S.) Marine Corps Ladies Auxiliary. Jones served in the U.S. Army for two years as a medic. He spent most of his time in the service stationed in Europe. After his time in the military, Jones worked in the banking industry for 25 years and was very active in his church First Baptist Church of Newberry. The Haven 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 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. The presentation ends with a salute to honor the veteran’s service.
