Honoring our Veterans

One hundred years ago, World War I, the war to end all wars ended. Great advancements in Healthcare occured, from facial surgery to anesthetics to the precursor of the modern ambulance.

Give a thought to all those that have sacrificed on behalf of our nation today and thank them for their service. The news clip below from NBC has some amazing footage from the early 20th Century that is indeed fascinating.
