Veteran's Day 2017

The Community at Sunset Wood would like to thank the New Hartford American Legion Post 1376 and their Color Guard for honoring our service members and to remember their sacrifices they have made and the courage it took to defend honor, duty, and country. A famous writer once said, “Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul.” We would also like to thank all of those who have, are, and will serve in the United States of America line of duty. #GodBlessAmerica #VeteransDay
