In 1999, Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month to give our nation the opportunity to educate each generation on the historical impact and diversity of our military, and to honor and recognize the members of our armed forces, both past and present.
To our current military service members, spouses, families, and veterans across HCA, we thank you for your service and your sacrifice. It is an honor to work alongside so many of you. And to our civilian colleagues, please join me in recognizing these men and women who serve our nation and protect our freedom. If one of your colleagues currently serves in the military or is a veteran or military spouse, please take a moment during this month to let them know we all appreciate their service.
We also encourage our HCA veterans and military spouses to join our Atlas Connect page (search for "HCA Military Veterans") to connect with other HCA colleagues who have served and to learn how HCA supports and honors our veterans and military spouses.
