On Independence Day, We Honor Our Veterans
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
On Independence Day, we honor all of the men and women who have served our country and protected our unalienable rights and freedoms. We owe them our gratitude and respect. And we owe them the opportunity to thrive after they have served their country. At NCIRE we have one mission and one goal: Advancing Veterans Health. We sustain a community of clinicians and researchers bringing the power of modern medicine to the health of our nation's Veterans. They are at the front lines of Veterans health research, developing novel treatments for the wide range of conditions that affect Veterans of all ages. On July 4th, the NCIRE community honors their service through our ongoing commitment to advancing their health, wellness and happiness.
