Newberry resident Richard LeGrand was recently recognized for his military service by Haven Hospice Veteran Volunteers. LeGrand served in the United States (U.S.) Navy during World War II. As a part of the pinning ceremony LeGrand received a red, white and blue blanket created by volunteers from the Ellzey United Methodist Church in Otter Creek. 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. The presentation ends with a salute to honor the veteran’s service.
