When you think of Memorial Day, what comes to mind?
The official start to summer?
What about remembering U.S. services members who have given their lives to protect our freedom?
According to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, “Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service.” This Memorial Day, we want to remember our loved ones who have served, and we’d love for you to join us. We’ll be using the hashtag #RememberingOurVeterans this weekend along with photos of the loved ones who have served in the U.S. military and are no longer with us.
Our first post is from John Murray, Vice President of Government Services at ReSound
“This Memorial Day I’ll remember Lafayette, who served in World War II as a Marine.”
At ReSound we’re proud to serve those who have served. According to the Hearing Health Foundation, 60% of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan come home with hearing loss and tinnitus, which are the two most common service-related injuries1. If you know a veteran or active military member who is suffering from hearing loss or tinnitus, encourage them to visit their local VA Hospital for a hearing test.
We’re also proud to support the Fisher House, an organization that provides ‘a home away from home’ for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. To learn more about Fisher House, please visit their website.
