Community-Wide Salute Brings Young and Old Together in Special Ceremony
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (PRWEB) November 19, 2018
They have served us with honor, and on November 11, military veterans became the guests of honor as more than 270 people gathered for a special celebration at Atlantic Shores Retirement Community. Each year, the patriotic community invites local guests and dignitaries to personally honor each resident veteran, as well as the loved ones of veterans who have recently passed.
Local Cub Scout packs, high school JROTC members, community and church vocal groups, area musicians, and even members of the Combat Veteran’s Motorcycle Association have been among those gathered to recognize those who have fought for our freedom. Honored speakers, pinning ceremonies, color guard and patriotic musical performances all combine to acknowledge the extreme sacrifices made by our American veterans and their families. An emotional playing of taps also memorializes all veterans who are no longer with us.
Located in the heart in one of the country’s largest military communities, Atlantic Shores deeply values all servicemen, and is home to a large number of retired servicemen and women from the Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard, and Coast Guard -- many who have served honorably, earning Purple Heart and Silver Star awards.
The community also boasts many civilians who have been recognized for making a vital difference to the readiness and well-being of soldiers on the frontiers of freedom, including 102 year-old resident Doris C. Baker. For almost 30 years, Miss Baker earned her way into the hearts of Special Forces soldiers and their families as a teacher assigned to Bad Toelz, Germany, the first overseas assignment base for the 1/10th Special Forces Group Airborne (Green Berets).
Her adventures in Europe put her directly in the path of history, including close-call border crossings, and a face-to-face encounter with Hitler’s last active general – experiences which served as the basis for Doris’ memoir “The Originals” -- the first book about the Green Berets written by a woman. Miss Baker’s legacy of support was recently honored with induction as an Honorary Member of the Special Forces Regiment (Green Berets), an honor bestowed on only nine other distinguished individuals worldwide, only two of whom are women.
Atlantic Shores is also home to the Colonial Chapter of Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, an organization which honors past and present veterans for the sacrifices they have made, and educates elementary and high school students children on the principles of citizenship, leadership, and how to support the freedoms their previous generation fought so hard to achieve. The group is part of the National Freedoms Foundation -- a patriotic organization started soon after WWII to held rebuild war-torn countries in Europe, and strengthen democracy throughout Europe and the U.S. The Colonial Chapter was chartered in 2008 as the first chapter in Virginia.
In addition to Veteran’s Day celebrations, Atlantic Shores also salutes retired and active duty military year-round, with special event partnerships including the Virginia International Tattoo.
This inspiring event features an astounding display of patriotism and international cooperation, with military and civilian bands, drill teams, bagpipe and drum bands, and highland dancers from around the world combining to create a powerful, unified and extraordinary performance.

Watch VideoSixteen Democrats have promised to oppose Rep. Nancy Pelosi to be the next Speaker of the House.
In a signed letter sent to Democratic colleagues, the group said they won't vote for Pelosi during both the internal caucus vote this month or the official House floor vote in January.
The group consists of 11 House veterans, 4 newly elected representatives and one who's in a race that hasn't been called yet. They've expressed their desire for new leadership as the reason for their opposition to the California representative. The group thanked Pelosi for her "years of service," but felt their party's recent majority in the House was brought about on a message of "real change in Washington."
Despite the group's relatively small size, their lack of support could prove detrimental to Pelosi. As of right now, Democrats have a 16-seat majority in the House, meaning there's a chance Pelosi will lose if the members stick to their plans. Five other Democrats have said they will not vote for Pelosi, but did not sign the letter.
Pelosi was elected Speaker of the House over a decade ago. She lost her position in 2010 when the GOP took the House, and has served as Minority Leader ever since. Reported by Newsy 21 hours ago.
On Saturday, November 17, Homes 4 Families and the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) held a public ceremony to present 24 veterans and their families with keys to their new homes.
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (PRWEB) November 19, 2018
On Saturday, November 17, Homes 4 Families and the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) held a public ceremony to present 24 veterans and their families with keys to their new homes.
“I believe in the American Dream, and for veterans, a big part of that dream is home ownership,” said CalVet Secretary Dr. Vito Imbasciani. “Through this project, CalVet and Homes 4 Families have provided the opportunity of home ownership to more than 90 veterans for more than 6 years.”
This final phase of 24 families completes the 78-home CalVet Residential Enriched Neighborhood, a program that offers permanent, affordable home ownership with manageable loan payments and family enrichment services to low-income veterans and their families. This model provides more than just a home – it includes services such as financial literacy workshops and veteran-specific trauma informed services, and has been proven to have positive, long-term outcomes for low-income families.
“Our Veterans understand the meaning of leadership, dedication, and service, plus they bring these important skills to our community. They are truly an asset,” said Donna Deutchman, President & Chief Executive Officer of Homes 4 Families.
The event also featured art by veterans and military family members, created as part of Homes 4 Families’ My TIME® (My Trauma Informed Military Enrichment) program. This program gives veterans and military family members a way to express their narratives and address their traumas through art-making, introspection, and peer-to-peer sharing.
This neighborhood was a partnership between Homes 4 Families and CalVet, with a contribution from the California Department of Housing and Community Development CalHome program.
This event honored major supporters and sponsors including The City of Santa Clarita, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Anheuser-Busch represented by General Manager Eric Gutierrez, The Ahmanson Foundation, Citi, and many more.
Among those present to welcome home the military families were: Congressman Steve Knight and his wife Lily, Secretary of CalVet Dr. Vito Imbasciani, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste, Santa Clarita Mayor Pro Tem Marsha MacLean, Kassie King representing U.S. Representative-elect Katie Hill, Kris Hough representing State Senator Scott Wilk, and Sharon Bronson representing Assemblymember Dante Acosta.
CalVet and Homes 4 Families are continuing to partner in building Enriched Neighborhoods® for low-income veterans and their families as they continue construction on the next project: a 56-home CalVet Residential Enriched Neighborhood in Palmdale, California.
About Homes 4 Families:
