Some 30 people attended a special event on July 3, 2013 hosted by LightBridge Hospice & Palliative Care and its veteran volunteers (primarily Active Duty and Reserve service members) to honor 20 veterans who reside at Vi at La Jolla Village. The group often conducts moving tributes to thank veterans close to the end of their lives for service to our country. Each presentation is brief. Veteran volunteer Wesley Klimt, an active duty Navy lieutenant in full dress, reads a short speech, gives each veteran a commemorative pin and salutes them. A staff member then presents the veteran with a certificate. Many family members were on hand to celebrate the moment.
