Female Veterans Who Inspire Us
Veterans Day is a chance to pause and thank all our men and women in uniform who have served our country to protect the freedoms we enjoy—as well the families who support them.
As a spouse to a Navy helicopter veteran, I know first-hand what soldiers and sailors sacrifice in order to serve. Friends have missed the birth of a child, been far away when a family member suffered a health issue, put life-changing plans like weddings or further schooling on hold because their country needed them.
These courageous men and women put country before everything, including their own safety.
To show our appreciation and gratitude on this day of remembrance, we share posts from some of our favorite and most inspiring veterans — women who like boutron are committed to sharing their own health journey.
