Certified Nursing Assistant Katie Marshall of Lebanon checks on Edward C. Allworth Veterans Home resident Rita Parrett in June. Unlike other care facilities, there is no set wake-up time for the home's 154 residents.

Allworth Veterans Home when CNA Marshall went to wake up a resident. I glanced in, saw this moment and knew right away this image would show the care and compassion CNAs demonstrate while taking care of our heroes.
