“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces,
but also by the men it honors… the men it remembers”
– John F. Kennedy
In honor of Veterans Day, Dial-a-Nurse® wants to take a moment to give praise to one of our own. Jose A. Santos, local veteran, man of integrity, great American and if that wasn’t enough Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. Jose not only embodies exactly what we expect from a Medal of Honor winner, he continues to live his life to the fullest. So on this great day Dial-a-Nurse® would like to thank all of our veterans for their tremendous service to keep our great country save.
Happy Veterans Day!!
