Winston Lawson Recognized by the Virginia Health Care Association for illustrious Cold War era career protecting Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson
(Norfolk, VA) – Winston George Lawson, a 81 year-old resident of Lake Taylor Transitional Care Hospital, was recently featured in the first publication of the Virginia Health Care Association’s Who’s Who in Virginia’s Long Term Care Facilities calendar.
The calendar’s theme, “Strolling Down Memory Lane,” captures Mr. Lawson’s experiences in the United States Secret Service, which included duty postings protecting Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson.
“From listening to his family’s stories about his service and seeing his private photograph collection, it’s evident that Mr. Lawson embraced his duty to protect our nation’s top leaders as a solemn and sacred commitment,” said (Orsini?).
“We at Lake Taylor are privileged to have Mr. Lawson as a resident, and appreciate his service to our country. “We also congratulate and welcome the Virginia Health Care Association’s decision to honor Mr. Lawson in this special publication.”
Lawson was born and raised in western New York state. He retired from the U.S. Secret Service after 22 years as Deputy Assistant Director of the US Secret Service. Following his retirement from government service, Lawson worked for Billy Graham and his son, Franklin Graham. He has been a resident of Lake Taylor since February 2008.
Mr. Lawson’s profile is featured on Virginia Health Care Association’s (VHCA) website at www.vhca.org. The VHCA selected 24 residents to be featured in this special publication from among its statewide membership of nearly 275 licensed nursing and assisted living facilities.
