FRANKLIN, Tenn. — Armed Forces of past and present were connected at a stroke of a pen this Veterans Day weekend, as veterans residing at Morning Pointe of Franklin wrote letters to active-duty troops. The handwritten words of encouragement and strength from the veterans underline a common bond between the two groups — a legacy of patriotism and service.

Morning Pointe never misses the opportunity to honor its veterans and active-duty servicemen and servicewomen through thoughtful activities and events as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day™ programs.
