There is no greater honor than to serve in the military of our great country during times of conflict or peace. In recognition of that service, and thanks to the generosity of Grace Dunlevy and Bob Levenson, Hospice of Marion County has established a Veterans Circle of Honor as a tribute to loved ones, either living or departed. A brick paving stone may be engraved with an honoree’s name, branch of service, and dates of service.
