While the nation paid tribute to our veterans on Veterans Day, Unite Us dedicated the entire month of November to those who served. Our founders and several of our team members are veterans; we wanted to pay tribute to them and all veterans around the country for their service and sacrifice. Through a series of content, we shared stories, raised awareness, and said thank you.
To kick off the month, we published a blog post from Taylor Justice, Unite Us President and Co-Founder. Taylor stated, "Dan and I are proud of our Unite Us team and the work we do every day to articulate and move towards our vision of one network serving people across the nation. But we are particularly humbled by our origins; we established Unite Us to help the people who risked their lives to protect us all. That’s why more than six years after Unite Us was created, we continue to meet the needs of veterans—never forgetting where we started. "
Mary Bier, National Director of Military Initiatives, is an invaluable Unite Us team member and military spouse. She shared insights from her unique role in a blog post titled Navigating This Landscape Together. "Unite Us is firmly rooted in the military community, from our founders to our staff. We value the diversity that veterans and military-connected family members bring to the team, and continue to seek out this diversity."
Unite Us also debuted two videos this month. We highlighted the TXServes San Antonio network, which provides first-class service to the thousands of veterans and their family members in the community. In another, we heard the inspiring personal testimonial of Reverend Edward Tello, a community member who found support and success through the the TXServes San Antonio network, first as a client, and now as a provider.
Throughout Veterans Month, Unite Us employees shared personal stories and sentiments about the veteran community. Their collective openness and participation was truly moving.
Unite Us is dedicated to building healthier communities and making a positive impact. This Veterans Month campaign reaffirmed the mission-driven values that our team is built upon. We are inspired by the sacrifice and strength of all veterans and will continue to honor them through our work, year-round.
