A presentation by HMC’s Director of Bereavement Services Jessica McCune, will be on healing wounded warriors through the Soul Injury program. In attendance will be local dignitaries, a high school choir and local color guard. Marion County Veterans and families are invited to attend this event to honor their service to our nation.
