They are our brothers and sisters. Our mothers and fathers. Our aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends and neighbors. They are Veterans and today we honor their service and sacrifice in the name of freedom and America.
Veterans Day was first known for the signing of the World War I Armistice on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Today, this is a day of remembrance for those who have proudly and honorably served our country. Without the sacrifices made by those who boldly stand for our country, we would not live in a place of such liberty and opportunity.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, there are a projected 22.6 million living veterans. Among them 35% served in the Vietnam War and are nearing their retirement years. Many Veterans from all wars have physical and emotional disabilities retained during service. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is common in Veterans who have seen heavy combat. Some Veterans are wheelchair bound or have prosthetic limbs. Many Veterans have also lived long and happy lives and are now ready to receive long term care in their homes.[db1] Since these people have valiantly protected our independence and comfort, we are honored to serve them in their time of need.
We are proud to serve Veterans in every branch in the United States Military. To all Veterans, we extend our gratitude for your ongoing service. To learn more about how SYNERGY HomeCare can help Veterans, visit www.synergyhomecare.com.
