NeuroRestorative National Capitol participants held a flag-raising ceremony this past Thursday, November 8th in celebration of Veterans Day. Residents of the home, Michael Baker (Ret.) Petty Officer First Class E-6, United States Navy, Daniel Stein, Sergeant E-5, United States Army, and Fatima Villa, Staff Sergeant E-5, United States Air Force, participated in the ceremony which marked the first time a flag was raised at the program.
“Being able to honor all of their fellow service members who have served by holding a flag-raising ceremony at their own home really means a lot to the participants, “said Kenneth Johnson, House Manager for NeuroRestorative National Capitol.
Located on five acres of land just outside of Washington, DC in Germantown, Maryland, NeuroRestorative National Capitol offers specialized community-based rehabilitation services and supports for Veterans and Military Service Members with brain injury and other neurological challenges. The participants are able to experience the comfort and familiarity of living in an environment that understands military culture and offers the camaraderie of living among fellow service members who have had similar experiences.
“All of our injuries are unique,” said Daniel. “But it’s nice to still be able to relate in that we have all served.”
“Service and sacrifice are the fabric of what servicemen and women treasure,” said Domingo Costa (Ret.) Command Sergeant Major, United States Army, currently NeuroRestorative Regional Veteran Liaison. “And tied to this longstanding heritage is the respect they have for the flag and the country they love."
