RSM Thanks Veterans and Their Families
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, 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 and those who continue to serve. We should also take the time to recognize the spouses and children of our honored Veterans who supported them during and after their service to this Nation, for they are often the “unsung heroes” for those who served.
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 thankful for their service, their dedication to our country and their daily sacrifices to ensure our nation’s 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 defend our country. On behalf of RSM’s VALOR employee network group and the rest of our 11,000 people nationwide, please join me in honoring and celebrating American veterans for their willingness to serve and their patriotism.
