OVERLAND PARK, KS (November 11, 2016) – Blue Sage Pointe continuing care neighborhood at Tallgrass Creek retirement community today dedicated a permanent Wall of Valor to honor its residents who have served in the United States armed forces.
Twenty-two residents were honored and thanked with their photos – many of which depict them in their military uniforms – displayed on the wall. They shared stories of their military service with staff.
One of the residents served as an elite Marine Paratrooper in World War II. There were only 3,400 of these paratroopers during the war, of which just 400 are still living.
