Cherokee Indian Hospital announces Veteran’s Memorial Re-dedication


Cherokee Indian Hospital will hold a re-dedication of the veteran’s memorial on the new facility campus on Monday, Dec. 7 at 1pm.   The American Legion Steve Youngdeer Post 143 will host the ceremony, which includes a flag raising, along with the Cherokee Indian Hospital and the Charles George Veteran’s Administration Center (VA). Staff from the Veterans Administration will also be available to enroll veteran’s for benefits.

“The Veteran’s in our community have served our country well and we look forward to the re-dedication of the memorial which they built, said Casey Cooper, Cherokee Indian Hospital chief executive officer.  “We are also fortunate to announce a partnership with the Veteran’s Administration which allows veterans to enroll for services and receive medical care through the Cherokee Indian Hospital. This partnership will allow our veteran’s to receive services at home.”

The public is invited to attend this event. Veterans who bring their DD214 can enroll with the VA and will be eligible for prizes.
