WWII Veteran to raise flags at new medical center

Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System will raise the American, POW/MIA and state flags for the first time at the new Veterans medical center during a short ceremony beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, July 4.

The event will take place at the flag pole on S. Galvez Street in New Orleans and will be followed by tours of the inpatient and outpatient buildings.

The ceremony will feature guest speaker Adjutant General for the Louisiana National Guard Maj. Gen. Glenn H. Curtis and SLVHCS Medical Center Director Fernando O. Rivera, FACHE. WWII Navy Veteran Joe Loyacano will raise the flag during a 21-gun salute. A presentation of the colors will be performed by a joint color guard of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. Music will be provided by the American Legion Post 175 band.

“The flag raising ceremony is yet another sign of our continued progress toward opening our new medical center,” Rivera said. “It is my hope that this event both honors the Veterans we serve and excites our community for our bright future ahead.”

Following the ceremony, SLVHCS employees will be offering tours of the medical center’s inpatient and outpatient towers to guests in attendance. The ribbon cutting ceremony for the medical center is scheduled for Nov. 18 with the opening set for December.
