BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Solaris Senior Living invites the public to a Veteran’s Day Tribute and presentation on Friday, Nov. 9. The event, which is open to the public, will begin at 11 a.m.
Solaris Senior Living, a leading assisted living community in Central Brevard, is located at 535 Crockett Boulevard on Merritt Island.
Capt. Scott Payan will give a first-hand account of his experience as a 16-year veteran of the U.S. Army.
In 2007, Payan served in Operation Jumpstart on the southwest border of the United States and Mexico.
He served our nation in Operation Iraqi Freedom, the American-led invasion of Iraq that was instrumental in toppling the Hussein regime, from 2008 to 2009.
Payan was also an Operations Officer at a M.E.P.S. (Military Entrance Processing Station). He oversaw the physical and academic testing of hundreds of recruits.
Today, he is the Headquarters Commander of the 3-345th Training Battalion, Army. Payan and the tenured servicemen in his unit are soon mobilizing to depart for Fort Bliss, Texas.
The annual Veteran’s Day event honors Americans that served in the line of duty and is open to all Solaris residents, their families and the community.
“We are honored to have Captain Payan speak about his expansive military service and the importance of Veteran’s Day,” said Shawn Corley, Administrator of Solaris Senior Living.
“Our team looks forward to recognizing the many Solaris residents who bravely served their country.”
VITAS Healthcare is sponsoring the event and will present veterans and their spouses with flag pins and certificates of appreciation.
