July 4th is the day we celebrate our independence. But, it is also a day to honor our Veterans. Saturday, July 4th at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, we will be airing “Together VA” during the “Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular” as a tribute to our Veterans and the many thousands of VA health care professionals who make their recovery a reality.

The dedicated and caring health care providers working at VA Medical Centers across the country give our Nation’s Veterans the critical health care they need to live fuller, more active lives. This spirit of team-oriented care and healing is the subject of VA’s latest TV commercial.

Airing on broadcast and cable networks nationwide, it features Dana, a Veteran and co-founder of an amputee surfing group, who learned to surf again thanks to his treatment at VA. “Together VA” shows the dedication behind our mission of serving the millions of Veterans who turn to VA each year. Filmed in Los Angeles at the Sepulveda VA location, the commercial features only VA employees, such as doctors, nurses and physical therapists—real health care professionals who make recovery possible.

The goal of the commercial is to promote greater awareness of VA and to aid in the recruitment of hard-to-reach health care occupations, including physicians, nurses and pharmacists. Stories such as Dana’s and the VA employees who made his recovery possible are important to share as we work toward our goal of recruiting the country’s best and brightest health care professionals.

Visit VAcareers.va.gov/togetherVA to learn more about the unique benefits of a career serving our nation’s Veterans, and be sure to tune in this Saturday.

Happy 4th of July!
