Senior home honors veterans in a ceremony

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) At the Syringa Senior living home, members of the home who are veterans were honored in a ceremony.

All members of the senior home as well as their families were invited to go to the ceremony.

There were six veterans honored, going back to WWII.

Many of them didn't know that they were going to be honored with a plaque and a coin of honor recognizing them for their service and sacrifice.

A local veteran gave a speech about remembering veterans 365 days a year.

"Most Americans profess to truly love our veterans especially at gatherings like this around Veterans Day and Memorial Day. And while their feelings are usually sincere, it's important to remember that veterans are defending us 365 days a year," said Levi Bridwell, one of the speakers.

All members of the senior home as well as their families were invited to go to the ceremony.
