Appreciating our Veterans: Fort Detrick Service Members Attend Veterans Day Breakfast at Montevue Assisted Living Facility

In recognition of Veterans Day, representatives from Fort Detrick spent the morning of Nov.9 honoring those who bravely paved the way for our Service Members today. The 2017 Veterans Day Celebration Breakfast took place at the Citizens Care and Rehab Center and Montevue Assisted Living Facility in Frederick, Maryland.

Col. Michael Sauer, U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command deputy chief of staff for operations, spoke to those in attendance thanking them for their service.

"Thank you for allowing me and my brothers and sisters in arms to come in to your home and share breakfast with you, it is probably the greatest source of inspiration for me on Veterans Day to be able to be here with you," said Sauer.

Echoing the sentiment of his grandfather, who served as a Chaplain in WWII, Korea and Vietnam, Sauer said, "service is a matter of honor as opposed to a matter of service and that is what I strive to do every day. Being here among you, whose experiences, careers and lives have so directly impacted our great society and our great Nation. I am sincerely grateful and I hope to live up to the standards that you all set."

Certificates of appreciation were bestowed upon the veterans making it a special morning for all.
