The We Honor Veterans Campaign provides recognition to organizations that demonstrate a systematic commitment to improving care for Veterans. Hospice of the Western Reserve launched its Peaceful & Proud:Personalized Care for Veteran program and designed it to provide staff and volunteers with the tools to respond to our veterans, the program provides education and raises awareness to the unique needs of veterans at the end of life.
Hospice of the Western Reserve is one of only three hospices nationwide to achieve recognition at levels 1, 2, and 3 of this tiered program. No hospice has reached level 4 recognition.
This story is presented in honor of Michael Kenneth King, an African-American Long Range Reconnaissance officer who served in the Vietnam War. Michael K. King was presented with two Bronze Stars in honor of his courageous service to his country and fellow servicemen. Michael K. King was a loving son, brother, uncle and devoted friend who died in April 1998 after having been exposed to agent orange while in service to his country in Vietnam. He is greatly missed.
Our hero, Michael K. King, was kindly cared for by his family and the Hospice of the Western Reserve.
