Today is Veterans Day. A day to reflect on the time, dedication and sacrifices made by the men and women in uniform who served and continue to serve our country. A very special thank you goes out to all Beaumont team members who served in the military and continue to serve our country. Your patriotism does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
Nancy Susick, RN, president of Beaumont Hospital, Troy, recently retired from the service. “As a veteran of the U.S. Navy, the pride I feel and the comradery I share with other veterans is tremendous,” she says. “To be remembered and recognized by others means more than anyone could know. The observance of Veterans Day allows our nation to reflect and remember.”
