Honoring our Veterans

By Lynn McCain | November 11 2021

In honor of Veteran’s Day, the Department of Pathology wishes to recognize members of our community who have served in the United States Armed Forces and their families. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice!  You are true heroes

We put out a call to those in the department who served and asked them to send us their photos and the branch in which they served. The photos received are below.

There are many more who served. In honor of all of our veterans, whether pictured or not, we offer this poem by an anonymous author.

Veterans’ Day

When you see someone in a uniform, Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty, Answering their country’s call,
Take a moment to thank them For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them; Make it very clear.
Just tap them on the shoulder, Give a smile, and say,
“Thanks for what you’re doing To keep us safe in the USA!”
