"I Am Grateful."

"I never set one foot in a combat zone. Instead, each of my lifetime wars―Vietnam, the Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Afghanistan came to me daily, in the form of wounded warriors and silent nurses. My lifetime mission was and still is, to meet them where they stand―to listen, to nourish, to heal if necessary and to stand up for them at every opportunity. I love my patients and the nurses who care for them, and I am grateful for the opportunity I have been given to serve them and this great country."
