Cohen Clinics at Centerstone Honor Fallen Heroes
Wreaths Across America has three missions – remember, honor and teach. This year, the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Centerstone embraced these missions. Team members joined forces with this heartwarming national effort and put their best foot forward to not only remember those who have served and passed, but to also pay tribute to them this holiday season and hopefully, encourage others to pass on this honorable tradition to future generations.
Each December, on Wreaths Across America Day, military families, caring individuals and organizations around the country ensure our fallen heroes graves are decorated and their sacrifices acknowledged for the holidays with a simple wreath that symbolizes so much more.
“It is such as simple gesture, but it means so much,” Clinic Director Julie Adams said. “Our country’s freedoms were never free. Our veterans and their families have sacrificed so much to ensure our way of life. I, for one, am proud and honored that we can be a part of this day that recognizes their selflessness.”
“Those who gave so much for our freedoms not only deserve, but have earned our gratitude,” Meghan Williams the clinic’s outreach director said. “Our veterans and military families have paid prices for our freedoms that cannot be easily explained, but because of these sacrifices we celebrate our holidays, embrace our traditions and are able to do so because of their of life of service. A wreath on a hero’s grave is a small thank you, but we hope it is an unspoken thank you that says more than we can.”
