One November in 1980-something, I went to the library at Heritage Elementary School for story time expecting to listen to our usual storyteller, Mrs. Gardener. However, that particular day, my class was greeted by an older gentleman wearing a number of military medals. It turned out this man was a World War II veteran and story time that day was all about Veterans Day. As a child I was mesmerized by the gentleman's stories and touched by the memories of his friends who lost their lives fighting for our country.
For close to 15 years now I have lived a few miles outside of Washington, D.C. Over the years I have had the opportunity to tour many of our nation's historic landmarks and memorials. In my opinion there is nothing more powerful than watching The Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.
Sunrise Medical US is honored to have numerous veterans and military reserve members working for our organization in a variety of departments including: customer service, engineering, finance, marketing, payroll, information technology, and sales. In the past two years we have worked with approximately 200 Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities to provide equipment to veterans throughout the United States. We not only take great pride in the fact that we manufacture seating and wheeled mobility equipment for our veterans, but we also are pleased to participate in events such as the National Veterans Wheelchair Games.
On behalf of Sunrise Medical I would like to say "Thank You" to all of the retired and active duty military servicemen and women and their families.
