November 11 is Veteran’s Day, a holiday to recognize and thank the men and women who have served our country.
We would like to thank all of our DHEC employees who served their country and are now continuing their service with our state. Our staff share a passion for service, and we are proud to have many employee veterans from all branches and backgrounds who have chosen to continue their careers of service with us.
A Flickr album featuring photos of our veterans is available here.
The land of the free and the home of the brave. While there are myriad reasons why America is able to lay claim to such a noble and enduring affirmation, few of those reasons rise above the role our nation’s military plays in securing our freedom.
Today, Veterans Day, we celebrate those who have gallantly and selflessly fought for and defended our country, whether during war or peace. Each year on November 11, America takes the time to say “thank you” and display proper respect and honor for the many men and women who have served so faithfully in the U.S. armed services.
We do not take their service lightly; they are indeed the wind beneath our wings. And on this day, we say to all veterans: We salute you.
