Veterans Day in the United States is a day to honor the men and women who have served in our military. This group of people, from every era and every branch, have sacrificially given themselves to the call of duty and honor, to preserve our national freedoms. Today, The Heart of Hospice wishes to recognize them for their patriotism and loyalty.
Veterans on hospice has continued to increase through the years, and the NHPCO has created a program called We Honor Veterans to identify the men and women who are veterans and recognize them for their service. Hospice agencies who participate in the program will survey the patients admitted onto hospice to determine if the patient is a veteran. Veterans on hospice will then receive a certificate of appreciation and special recognition for their service to our country.
To all the veterans and families, please accept our humble and grateful recognition of your service with a heartfelt "thank you."
