Every year on November 11, our nation takes the opportunity to honor and appreciate the sacrifices and selflessness of the men and women who serve in the American armed forces. Here at WakeMed, we are fortunate to have more than 450 active and veteran service members among our family, including our CEO who retired from the Navy after serving for more than 30 years. On this day each year, we take time to thank and honor the veterans among our staff – employees, physicians and volunteers – as well as everyone who served our country in the armed forces.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your contributions to our organization, community, state, nation and world. Your support and sacrifices – and the sacrifices of your families and loved ones – have helped make this nation what it is today.
Here are some pictures from this morning’s Veteran’s Day service held on WakeMed Raleigh Campus.
