It’s never too late to say thank you to our nation’s veterans; even at the end of life.
Americans across the country celebrate Veterans Day on November 11, a special day to salute the men and women who have bravely served our country in the military.
These fellow Americans have made profound sacrifices in defense of freedom and they deserve our heartfelt thanks and appreciation. Honoring our nation’s veterans includes supporting them throughout their entire lives, especially at the end.
As our nation marks Veterans Day, Hospice of Douglas County deepens our commitment to increase veterans’ access to the compassionate, high quality care available from the nation’s hospice providers. One of the ways we’re making this happen is through our active involvement with We Honor Veterans, an innovative program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization that we created in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
There is something else that’s important for every American to do, and that is to say, “Thank you” to our country’s veterans. Not just on November 11, but all year long.
Ask your friends, neighbors, coworkers and others in your community whether they have served in the military (you may be surprised how many have), and thank those who have served for their sacrifice.
If you know a veteran who is in need of the special care hospice can bring to people facing serious and life-limiting illness, please reach out and help them learn more about the care available. For more information, contact Hospice of Douglas County at (320) 763-6018.
To all our nation’s veterans, thank you!
Hospice of Douglas County
