Frontier Home Health and Hospice is honoring their veterans in a special way this week.

They serve around 30 veterans in Helena.

To honor them, the employees at Frontier have put together carnation bouquets with a thank you card for each veteran and staff members who serve veterans.

Clinical Manager Destiny Boyd says, every year they do this, and every year the reactions from those who receive a bouquet are heart warming.

Boyd added, "Gratitude, tears, and we also recognize the caregivers as well so they get pretty excited too because our veterans have been through a lot but so have the people that have stood by their side and not left them so we recognize those guys as well too, its a pretty exciting thing."

Frontier Home Health and Hospice would also like to remind everyone November is Hospice Awareness Month.

Hospice services are offered as a way for patients and their families to live their lives to the fullest despite serious illnesses
