PUNXSUTAWNEY — Many veterans were honored throughout the local area and across the country with various programs, parades and other events Thursday.

There’s another group of veterans that people sometimes forget about — the ones who live in long-term health care facilities like Mulberry Healthcare and Rehabilitation in Punxsutawney.

Vickie Amundson, activities director at Mulberry, said the facility’s veterans received military decorations made by other residents to hang in their rooms.
