Operation Patriot

MacDill Air Force Base, Fla. -- For many veterans at the Baldomero State Veteran's Home, life can be very confusing. Approximately 70 of the 120 veterans suffer from Alzheimer's disease. These veterans often have trouble remembering which room is theirs. To help with this, members of Operation partnership have constructed and installed shadow boxes like these with photos of the veterans when they were younger, complete with military awards. Many believe this simple display helps those veterans suffering from memory loss. (Official United States Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Shawn C. Rhodes)
