November is Veterans Appreciation Month for Jefferson Seniors

Thank you to our Veterans
Veterans receiving honors even from our youngest
Humana supports our Senior Veterans

Jefferson Parish and Jefferson Council on Aging (JCOA) and Humana proclaim the month of November to officially remember and honor the veterans of Jefferson Parish. On Wednesday,  November 15th at 9:30 am before the Council meeting, the official veterans’ proclamation will be publicly read honoring the Jefferson Parish seniors and disabled adults who have served in the armed forces. The Council meeting will be held at the Kenner Council Chamber at 1801 Williams Blvd. The proclamation will  kick off the series of senior center veteran proclamation celebrations where each veteran will receive a personalized certificate with name and rank honoring their service.

 

JCOA is a place where seniors feel welcomed, validated and honored. The Veteran Proclamation Program is a way we honor and provide dignity to our seniors’ service in the armed forces”, states Al Robichaux, Executive Director of JCOA.

 

Humana is proud to support the JCOA center celebrations honoring the member veterans with festivities and fanfare. With more than 325,000 Medicare and commercial health plan members statewide, Humana has launched its Bold Goal program to improve the health of New Orleans and Baton Rouge by 20 percent by 2020.
