Honoring Our Veterans
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION |
November 11 is a date that is special to many of us. Veterans Day, which coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day in other countries to mark the anniversary of the end of World War I, was designated a national holiday in 1938 after Congress had previously passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance to honor all Veterans.
Veterans Day is a time to commemorate all veterans, unlike Memorial Day, which pays tribute to those who died in combat. Today, we pay tribute to all American veterans who have served, as well as those who continue to serve. We’re also recognizing veterans’ spouses and children, who are often “unsung heroes,” supporting our veterans during and after their service to our country.
This Veterans Day, I encourage you to take time to honor and thank someone in your life who has served in the United States Armed Forces. Send a text, make a call or write an email to let them know you are grateful for their service, dedication to our country and their daily sacrifices to ensure peace and prosperity.
Stewardship is a core value at RSM and one that we admire in the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our country. On behalf of RSM’s VALOR employee network group (ENG) and the rest of our 13,000 people nationwide and in Canada, please join me in honoring and celebrating American veterans for their patriotism.
