SAN ANTONIO, January 10
Good Samaritan Community Services (Good Sam) is celebrating the men and women who have so bravely served our country during the annual Veteran’s Day Celebration on Thursday, November 9th from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Good Sam Pavilion located at 1600 Saltillo Street.
“Each year we come together to recognize the men, women and families who have selflessly dedicated their lives to our country in so many ways,” says Good Sam CEO Simon Salas. “The neighborhood surrounding Good Sam has such a rich and proud history of service, it is only fitting to celebrate veterans on our campus.”
This year’s keynote speaker is General Alfred Valenzuela, a highly decorated veteran who is from the surrounding Good Sam neighborhood and who served 33 years in the United States Army. Sidney Lanier High School ROTC will perform the presentation of the colors and the band will provide the music during the program. Lunch and dessert will be served to all attendees at the conclusion of the ceremony.
