Special Pinning Ceremonies
Veteran pinning ceremonies are a way to honor veterans and thank them for their service. Over the years, Gilchrist has pinned hundreds of veterans and coordinated ceremonies not just for veterans at Gilchrist, but for the community at large. Below you will find just a few of our many touching tributes to veterans.

Gilchrist honors veterans on Veterans Day 2021, and thanks them for their sacrifice and service. This video was shared with veterans in residential care communities throughout Central Maryland.

Memorial Day – May 31, 2021
From Mt. Airy to Havre de Grace, Elkridge, Columbia and Towson, veterans were honored and their sacrifices acknowledged. Members of Gilchrist’s staff and Gilchrist volunteers offered pins of gratitude and remembrance to all resident veterans, and not just those who are part of our hospice program.
More Information About Pinning Ceremonies
Gilchrist offers smaller-scale pinning ceremonies to patients and their families on a regular basis. Our veteran volunteers will travel to the patient’s place of residence and conduct the ceremony to honor and recognize the veteran’s service and sacrifice. To view them, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or Twitter.
