Thanks, Vets! From RMS

Veterans Day has a long history, originating as Armistice Day on Nov.11, 1919—the first anniversary of the end of World War I. By 1938, November 11th became a national holiday. Not to be confused with Memorial Day, which is the fourth Monday in May and honors service members who died in service to their country or as result of injuries incurred during battle, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans both living and deceased who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

Here’s what Veterans Day means to us:

Thanks, Vets! From RMS“Veterans Day is a day to remember and give thanks to thousands of courageous, selfless Americans who risked their lives, so we can enjoy the rights and freedoms they fought for.”
– Matt D.

“Veterans Day is the day I realize how important it is to recognize, give thanks and celebrate our heroes who fought with all they had, to give us all we have! ‘Land of the Free Because of the Brave’”

– Loribeth V.

 

 

How does RMS give back to our veterans?

Regenerative Medicine Solutions wanted to find a way to show our thanks to veterans. In our search, we realized that the SS American Victory, which now serves as a museum, is just around the corner from our office.

The SS American Victory is one of four operable World War II (WWII) ships also used in Korea and Vietnam.  Now, it’s completely run by volunteers, most of whom are older war veterans. They have trouble keeping up with everything, and the ship needed cleaning. So, when they asked RMS if we would help clean it, we said “yes!”

We cleaned the staterooms, which involved removing junk that had been thrown into the rooms, dusting, sweeping and staging. It was a great experience, and we got to see firsthand what it would have been like living on a WWII ship.

Thanks, Vets!

Currently, there are approximately 23.2 million military veterans in the United States, and 9.2 million veterans over 65, 1.9 million veterans under 35 and 1.8 million veterans who are women. There are five states that have more than 1 million veterans within their population. California has the most veterans at 2.1 million. Next are Florida and Texas that each have 1.7 million veterans. Finally, New York and Pennsylvania each have 1 million veterans. At Regenerative Medicine Solutions, we’re grateful for the honorable services of our military and armed forces.
