Recognizing all who have served

An item from the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation organization.


Dear Friend,

Today we recognize all who have served in the Armed Forces.  

People of all ages across the nation will honor our veterans in meaningful ways — flying the American flag, asking a veteran about their experience, attending a community Veteran’s Day event, or visiting the gravesite of a fallen veteran.

We join you in thanking and honoring all of those who have served.

Sincerely,

Ramiro

Touro University California – Celebrating Our Veterans

Touro University California (TUC) is our Secretary/Treasurer, Michael Barbour’s, place of employment.  The student Military Club at TUC is one of our partners with our branch’s 2017 Poppy Campaign.  Earlier today, TUC posted this Veterans’ Day notice.


CELEBRATING OUR VETERANS

For 20 years, the veterans of Touro University California (TUC) have continually proven themselves to be among the best that the university has to offer. Their presence has been felt everywhere, from the first graduating class to the students on campus today. They are members of our staff and faculty, and many continue to serve. They come from all branches of the military and represent generations of service to our country.

In anticipation of our Veterans Day Celebration on Friday, November 10th at noon, the following series will feature many of the veterans of TUC and recognize what they have done for our country. Stay tuned for new installments.

If you are a TUC veteran or know someone else who would like to be featured, please let us know at tuc.advancement@tu.edu

Celebrating our Veterans - Joy Dugan “I come from a military family.  My husband was a medic in the Army, his PA was one of the reasons why I chose to be a PA.  I  chose to be an Army National Guard PA specifically because we have a dual mission to support stateside and federal missions.  I have previously participated in wildfire relief efforts. I’m currently in charge of a Troop Medical Center on a deployment to the Middle East for 6 months.”

Celebrating Our Veterans

I currently serve in the U.S. Army Reserves with a program for medical students. After medical training, I will then serve as an Army Physician. The biggest reason that inspired me to serve is my younger brother. When I took my oath, my brother was deployed with the U.S. Army in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. If anything would have happened to him while deployed, my family placed our trust in military physicians to make sure he got home. My inspiration is to serve those who serve. I serve to help make sure everyone’s siblings come home to their families.

 Celebrating Our Veterans “I enlisted in the USAF after graduating from high school and served for 10 years.  I had family members who were service members and grew up in a military area so it seemed like a natural fit.  I was inspired by the opportunity to serve side by side with a variety of people from all different cultures and travel the world.  Being deployed as part of Operation Enduring Freedom after the 9/11 attacks lent a whole new perspective about the gravity of serving and what the job truly entails.  I have the utmost respect for those who wear the uniform.”
