Aegis Living on Madison staff recognize resident Fred Shiosaki during the assisted living and memory care community's celebration of veterans on Memorial Day, May 25. The community's traditional pinning ceremony was changed in light of COVID-19.

Employees holding American flags lined the community lobby six feet apart, while one resident at a time was honored and pinned. Family members joined from outside the community and watched their loved ones being honored through the lobby windows. Veteran and Aegis Living on Madison Care Director Ashley Besmehn pinned all veterans. The Aegis Living team also made one-on-one room visits for all residents to celebrate the day.

Resident veterans honored included were: Bob Bailey, Jules Berger, Bob Bingham, Steve Block, George Eggler, Don Fitzhugh, George Gilman, Father Tony Haycock, Steve Kiesow, Masao Koba, Frank Nishimura, Leon Pope, Roy Prosterman, Joe Quinn, Carl Rabun, Lou Satz, Fred Shiosaki, Steve Starkovich, David Swan and Stephen Warner.
