Honoring for 2019: The United States Navy
"Semper Fortis" 
"America's Navy - Forged by the Sea"
  • To recruit, train, equip, and organize to deliver combat ready Naval forces to win conflicts and wars while maintaining security and deterrence through sustained forward presence.
  • The sea is an incredible beast. It reaches impossible speeds, depths and distances. It cannot be beaten with the strongest fist, the sharpest knife or the fastest bullet. In America's Navy, water and salt flow through our veins in the same proportion as the sea. That mighty force is the lifeblood of the greatest Navy ever to sail upon it, slip beneath it or fly above it. It shapes Americans from every corner of the nation into Sailors with the courage to protect liberty back home. Bonding us with the commitment to serve with honor. The sea propels every one of our men and women to defeat or defend. To comfort or to awe. To victory or to the rescue.

We are America's Navy. And we are all Forged by the Sea.

VA Employees 

Throughout all VA’s systems, our employees serve each and every Veteran that walks through our doors. They are OUR Heroes. They have protected us with no questions asked. It is our mission to serve them to the best of our ability and to make sure they get the help they need. We fight for and with them in all ways mentally and physically that a Veteran has suffered. But we cannot serve them without having our own Heroes in place. Our employees dedicate their work to doing what we can for our Veterans. Some are Veterans themselves who want to help their fellow service people after their service is completed. Some are employees who could not serve but still want to help our country and our Veterans. This job is a calling, from the clinical and administrative positions, we each look forward to serving our Veterans. We strive everyday to give them any and all support necessary to help them truly come home. It takes a special person to work with our Veterans. To hear their stories of hardships and loss, to be their solid ground to stand on, that is what our employees do. We are their rock and we strive to make sure every Veteran is cared for and remembered. We will never forget their service and we will continue to improve our services and let them know we care and have not forgotten their sacrifice.
