Celebrating Veterans Day
Updated: May 12
November 11th is Veterans Day and I want to personally thank my father and father-in-law for their service. If you see a Veteran on 11/11, please thank them for their service. I will take it a step further. Anytime you see a Veteran, thank them.

Our veterans may suffer serious health problems as a result of their service, including addiction, depression and physical health. In knowing so, Simmons Hanly Conroy has created a dedicated resource page to provide information on resources that help support our heroes.
These resources include the Veterans Affairs (VA) to help find medical care or counseling, mental health organizations such as the Veterans Crisis Line and non-profit veteran support organizations such as the Wounded Warriors Project, Disabled American Veterans and the Joshua Chamberlain Society all in which Simmons Hanly Conroy has proudly donated to.
