Veterans Honored at Our Lady of Consolation Nursing & Rehabilitative Care Center
Veterans Day was observed at Our Lady of Consolation Nursing & Rehabilitative Care Center, West Islip, with numerous events saluting its veteran residents and staff, many of whom served their country in World War II. As a gesture of appreciation for their service, the veterans were guests of honor at a special breakfast, where gifts from the children of Bayview Elementary School were given to them. The West Islip American Legion invited Our Lady of Consolation’s resident veterans to attend a prayer service and luncheon at the American Legion hall. Earlier in the month, a plaque was blessed and dedicated in remembrance of the residents of Our Lady of Consolation who gave their best when called upon to serve and protect their nation. Father Brian Brinker, Our Lady of Consolation chaplain, offered a blessing to “all our veterans and their families who know and live out the meaning of valor, strength and bravery. For those who made the greatest sacrifice, we remember them with great reverence and thanksgiving.”
