Veterans Day celebrations are already underway in South Mississippi, including a ceremony at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport.
Gulfport ROTC Color Guard presented the colors, followed by song selections from the Gulfport High School Madrigals.
The ceremony was held in recognition and remembrance of our veterans and also included a food drive going towards the VA for homeless veterans on the Coast. Vice President of Administrative Services at Memorial Fred Gargiulo said, “We give to the community. We believe in giving to the community. We provide compassionate care here. We like to do that for the veterans who are in need and that’s why we do this annually.”
Memorial Hospital puts on this food drive around this time every year.
