Veteran’s Day Celebration 2019
Renaissance Village Murrieta celebrated its annual Veteran’s Day Celebration on Monday, November 11. The community held it in conjunction with Renaissance Village Rancho Belago. We honored veterans from both communities for the sacrifice and service they gave to their country. President Al Rattan highlighted each veteran’s branch, rank, service, and accomplishments. In addition, they received a certificate of recognition provided by Living Waters Hospice. Various respected dignitaries such as Councilman Johnathan Ingram and Murrieta Mayor Kelly Seyarto were also in attendance. We also welcomed William and Fay Bishop, members of the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution national societies.
Veteran residents showed off the pride of their respective branches of service with shirts, hats, or in their uniforms. Daniel Foley, RVRB resident, former U.S. Air Force Major, and one of the most decorated veterans at the community, came dressed in his uniform. He also brought a shadow box which showed the service medals and ribbons he received throughout his 24 years of service. Foley is the recipient of a Bronze Star, Air Medal, Commendation Medal with Two Oak Leaf Clusters, Outstanding Unit, Combat Readiness Medal, & Vietnam Gallantry Cross Medal with Palm.
After the presentations, those in attendance viewed a special flyover by San Diego Salute. Four Beechcraft T-34 A/B Mentors flew over the community and blew smoke in honor of the communities’ celebration.
