Honoring our AZBio Veterans
Our freedom and our opportunities have been protected and paid for by the sacrifices of our veterans. They dedicated their lives, talents and time to a common goal - protecting and serving others. Today, our AZBio veterans serve in new ways. They may have traded their uniforms for a doctor's white coat, a lab coat, or a business suit but the goal remains the same. For what they did then and where they are now...we salute them. President John Fitzgerald Kennedy once said, "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." Many of America's veterans depend on us to help them as they heal and as they age. Our work matters. So does the work of organizations that support them like the Wounded Warrior Project. If you wish to honor a veteran, you can help by donating at woundedwarriorproject.org . To all of our AZBio Veterans, Thank You.
