Veterans Day Celebration at Stone Oak

Every November 11th we as a hospital have the privilege of recognizing some of the most valiant men and women that walk our halls. Wednesday we were able to do just that, hosting a lunch celebration for many current and former members of the U.S. military to thank them for their honorable service to our country.

On this day there are two things that I think—in all the hustle and bustle that is your life and mine—we often take for granted.  The first is our health. Given this is the business we are in, we can easily be reminded what it is like for our patients that just yesterday were fine but now find themselves at the end of their rope.  It’s a quick gut check to remember to live life to it’s fullest each and every day.  The second is our freedom.
Ever really given a lot of thought to how lucky you are to pray in public?  To wear what you want?  To marry who you would like?  To say what’s on your mind?  I could go on and on in regards to the real luxuries we are afforded by how blessed we are to be in the USA.  Many have died to protect these freedoms, and more still serve to protect it today and into our future.  We are grateful for everyone a part of the Stone Oak family who either has served in the military and/or is currently doing so.  Several of our team that fit that category are pictured in these photos alongside our Senior Leadership.  It is in their honor that Ann, Scott and I get to stand in great company and be a part of this special day.  To our veterans, Thank You.
