Facility Raising Funds For Veteran's Memorial

Facility Raising Funds For Veteran's Memorial

Posted: Updated:
MALBIS, ALABAMA -
The administration at The Blake At Malbis assisted living facility have launched a veteran's flag pole and memorial project, but they need your help.

A flag pole will be installed listing and honoring the names of the veterans living at the facility.

The cost of implementing this project is approximately $2,000 and the residents can't raise the funds alone. Residents and staff are asking for your help.

There are several veterans living at the facility, including Larry Hanson. Between 1958 and 1959 Hanson was a member of the Navy Experimental Laboratory in Philadelphia. He was launched into space, some 60,000 feet, testing the first astronaut space suit. The suit was later used by our first 11 astronauts.

Hanson also served as a Navy pilot in Korea and Vietnam.

If you can make a contribution to the project please review the information below:

Checks can be made payable to The Veterans Flag Pole Project At Malbis.
