Honor Veterans on Memorial Day 2019

Follow and join the conversation with #VeteranOfTheDay#VAPodcast#BorneTheBattle#VetQ

Today we are observing Memorial Day here in the states. Throughout the long weekend there will be parades, services, celebrations and all sorts of events to remember those who died in service to our nation. We all know too well that it is not always easy to be a surviving vet and receive the help and services needed to thrive in our society. In honor of Memorial Day and our living vets, we wanted to take a look at some of the good that is happening as it pertains to innovations, technology and healthcare.
