Thank You, Veterans

Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower visits paratroopers, including Bill Hayes, at center behind Ike’s right hand, in England on June 5, 1944, moments before the troops boarded transport planes bound for Normandy and the June 6 D-Day invasion. Bill Hayes is one of many veterans Hospice of the Red River Valley has been privileged to serve.

In honor of Veterans Day, all of us at Hospice of the Red River Valley would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each of our nation’s veterans.

We also want to extend our thanks to the many veterans and their families who have allowed us to give back by serving those who have served for us. In 2009 alone, we provided hospice services to 192 veterans in our service area. It is truly an honor and a privilege to provide care for these American heroes.

Our veterans are deserving of the highest-quality end-of-life care available. We’re honored to partner with several organizations to help ensure hospice services are available to veterans in our region. Through our partnerships with the Veterans Administration Medical Center, the North Dakota Veterans Home, and various fraternal veterans’ organizations, we continually look for ways to grow and improve our outreach to veterans and their families.

Please take a few moments today to join us in thanking all veterans for their service to our country.
