Update1: Happy Memorial Day

with one comment

Update1: While at work today, I came across a blog post that I felt would make an excellent, and in fact necessary, update to our “Happy Memorial Day” post (see ‘original’ below).

Like most Memorial Day messages, our post was an extension of our gratitude to “all the servicemen and woman who have served.” Beyond the soldiers, war requires other selfless individuals to make the ultimate sacrifice. The post that I came across reminded us all not to forget about the nurses:

With today being Memorial Day, I thought we should take a minute to remember those nurses who went to war to serve the boys fighting for us.  Many of them lost their lives right along with their patients.  Many of them returned, damaged beyond repair from the stress and the sights of war.  So, while we remember our lost soldiers, let’s also add our prayers for the military nurses who threw caution to the wind and went where they were needed, despite severe danger and loss.  These valiant men and women epitomize the nursing profession.

This excerpt is from the blog Nursing Notes.

Original Post (published on 05/31/10): The Association of Traumatic Stress Specialists (ATSS) would like to extend a Happy Memorial Day to all of our readers. We hope everyone enjoys themselves and has a safe and happy holiday.

We would especially like to extend our sincere gratitude to all the servicemen and woman who have served and to those who have dedicated their lives to preserving the freedoms of our country.
