CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Erlanger Health System held a ceremony to recognize veteran employees and their families.
Erlanger’s Employee Veterans Group organized the event.
It included a prayer and remarks from different people who have served.
Erlanger has veterans who hold various positions at the hospital, from bedside staff to leadership roles.
Sean Turner told us “As a veteran myself we have to celebrate those who sacrifice. Like I said earlier, it is foundational in our community to serve others and I think it is important to celebrate those who do.”
William Bell added “Well, it is an honor for us to be honored, but we did what we had to do for our country. We stand proud to be able to serve in our different branches that we feel we wanted to join.”
One of the questions patients are asked when they are admitted to Erlanger is if they are a veteran.
