Remembering lives lost at the VA Hospital Memorial Day Recognition

A Biloxi hospital took time out today to remember the veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country.

The Veteran Affairs Medical Center held a Memorial Day Recognition for those who served in the military and to remember who did not make it back home.

Guests and veterans listened to speeches from dignitaries, ending with a special prayer for all those in attendance.

Commemorative flags were also dedicated to veterans locally and nationally who are no longer with us today.

Interim Medical Center Director Stephanie Repaski says it’s an honor to serve our veterans. “This is who we are. Our mission is to serve our veterans and if we don’t recognize them, then we lose an opportunity. It also helps us then build trust with the veterans in the community.”

The Veterans Affairs Medical Center will be participating in another Memorial Day Ceremony at the Biloxi National Cemetery at 9 a.m. on Monday.
