Many facilities across the country exist to help veterans whenever they need it.

Now, one is being recognized for its long-term impact on the former service members in its community.

The Thomson-Hood Veterans Center in Frankfort, Kentucky, will turn 25 in early August, and a big event is planned to commemorate the day.

The nursing home for vets, with its 285 beds, will be celebrated for its contributions with a guest speech by Kentucky governor Matt Bevin.

The home was opened in 1991 but renamed seven years later to honor George Thomson – a vet who served in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam – and Beatrice Elizabeth Greenwell Hood, the first administrator of the facility.
