2021 Memorial Day Message from VAPAHCS Director

1 min read

Memorial Day dates to the Civil War, when it was called Decoration Day, which was a time to honor the record-breaking number of lives lost during one of the historical wars that changed our country forever. Since then, the sentiment has not changed as nearly all of us either know or know of someone lost in the line of duty.

In this video, I pay tribute to a WWII and POW Veteran who was one of my personal inspirations. He remains a constant reminder of why I work every day to be a better VA leader and advocate for Veterans. It is Veterans like him that inspire all our VA Palo Alto Health Care System family to be proud and show gratitude when providing the quality care that our Veterans deserve.

We ask whether you are remembering or spending time with loved ones, that you take a pause to honor the service of all those we have lost and let them know: “We remember you. We honor you. And you will never be forgotten.”
Thank you to all our Veterans that we can still embrace and those we will always remember.

VAPAHCS Director
