Mercy Hospice Honors WWII Veteran

July 18, 2016

Mercy Hospice honored PFC Glenn Richard Cowen for his service in the U.S. Army Special Services.  Cowen served 18 months active duty stateside in the Army Band for his special talent of “having lip” on the trombone.

He completed basic training and additional Special Services training at Camp Lee, Virginia and was later deployed to Fort Lawton, Washington, near Seattle.  Cowen and the band members spent lots of time on Pier 91 where they saw soldiers off to war and welcomed them home again.

Mercy Hospice presented Cowen with a “We Honor Veterans” pin and a certificate of appreciation for his service to our country.    As a proud partner with the “We Honor Veterans” program developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Mercy Hospice provides high-quality care and end of life services veterans may need.
