YAMHILL COUNTY, Oreg. (KOIN) —  Veterans at assisted living facilities in Yamhill County were recognized for their service.

The Veteran’s Service Office in Yamhill County honored 105 veterans with personalized certificates–complete with their name and their branch of service, along with a patriotic pin.

“It’s just a little token.. that’s the least we could do,” Yamhill County’s lead veteran service officer and 31-year veteran Jerry Wilson said. “My receptionist called around to all the facilities and got a list of veterans’ names. It was a very long task, but I’m hoping that with this effort that we did it will brighten up their lives a little.”

Wilson said his team delivered each certificate of appreciation to veterans at nearly a dozen local assisted living facilities.
