Stormin’ Norman, Senator Inouye and Charles Durning are but three famous Veterans that have left us recently. As the news makes its way across America, Veterans of all ages reminisce about days gone by and where we were when we served with, before or, after these Great Americans.

Other Veterans, not so famous, can be found with a simple online search most any day. Take, Ty Ziegel; a 30 year old Iraq Veteran. Given eight extra years, he made an impression on those around him that will live for years to come.

A former Florida State Supreme Court Justice Carroll S. Walsh Jr., not only participated in liberating 2500 Jewish concentration camp prisoners from a Nazi train at the end of World War II, but will be long remembered in the community he served for decades afterward.

Clifford J. SiJohn, a Vietnam Veteran that was described as “one of the last storytellers” served as the Coeur d’Alene tribe cultural awareness director since 1985.

Each of these Veterans served our Country during and after their military service. And like them, all Veterans can lead a rewarding successful life. That is why VA is always seeking quality caregivers and providers who are dedicated to providing the best care to our Nation’s Veterans. Not all Veterans become famous nationally, are given a hero’s welcome home or even share their experiences in detail with others. However, we all know that every Veteran has a story, every Veteran has a purpose and VA invites you to keep them thriving long after their military service ends, as they remain or return to local communities across America.

If you are a Healthcare provider, I urge you to review open positions nationwide and find where you can make a difference in a Veteran’s tomorrow, today!
