Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center honors veterans


Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center honored veterans Monday, with a ceremony in their hospital lobby.  Many members of the community, employees of the hospital, and veterans were in attendance.  Medical Center President, Albert Gutierrez thanked veterans for their service and commented on how many medical services, such as blood transfusions, came about because of the military.

Guest speaker at the event, US Navy 2nd Class Ralph Bakle, talked about his years in Vietnam on a river boat.  He says it is important to honor the ones who have served, while they are still here.  "It is the most important," Bakle said, "because it celebrates all the veterans that are alive, not just having been deceased."

The event was followed by a special noon mass.
