As we and the Veterans we serve celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday this week, it’s important to us to recognize some of the many things that we are thankful for every day at VA.
We’re united as an organization to deliver on our country’s long-standing promise to honor and care for the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our country. This is what unites us, what drives us and what shapes the way we approach our daily work.
Our culture is defined by a set of core values: integrity, commitment, advocacy, respect and excellence. Every day, we are thankful for the clear directives that our mission provides, and how they renew our dedication to our Veterans.
With over 9 million Veterans relying on VA for health care, not a day goes by that we don’t see some of the brave men and women who volunteered to serve this country. It’s always been our goal to make sure that, when they walk through our doors, they receive medical care commensurate with the service they have offered.
At VA, we know that our world would be a very different place without Veterans. Though we wish that every Veteran could be hale and hearty every single day, we are thankful to stand beside them during these health care journeys – to be here when and how they need us.
Just as Veterans give us a reason to serve, our staff is why we can serve. From doctors and nurses to dentists and aides, from police officers to carpenters to cooks, it takes a team of dedicated professionals to make VA what it is – the benchmark of excellence in care.
We are thankful for every member of our team. For those who come in early and stay late, for those who go the extra mile, we know that your choice to work at VA is because you have embraced the mission caring for our Veterans in a kind and professional manner. You are the reason we can make a difference in the lives of those we serve, and for that, we are grateful.
Our future (and yours)
As with everything we do, VA looks to the future with an eye towards our ongoing mission: care that exceeds expectations, restores hope and builds trust within the Veteran community. VA continues to be a leading source of health care innovation. Whether it is improving access to care, finding personalized solutions to Veterans’ needs, or researching new ways of detecting, preventing and treating disease, we are thankful for what the future holds.
To help make that future a reality, we recruit the best and the brightest to our VA team, and we know that means providing a chance to showcase your skills. A career at VA offers opportunities for leadership and advancement that are second to none across a wide range of disciplines, so this Thanksgiving, we are also thankful to be part of your future.
