Paralyzed Veterans of America: A Great Resource for Vets with SCI/D - Cure Medical

Cure Nation "Join Us Online" logoCURE NATION: We appreciate our veterans who roll, and wanted to share some ways you can connect with new friends who have served in the military and may now roll on a similar path. 

And, as thanks for your service, we’ve also included a list of national restaurant chains below that are offering free meals or discounts on Veterans Day for those who have served in our armed forces.  See it at the end!

Paralyzed Veterans of America logoParalyzed Veterans of America (PVA) was founded in 1946 with the purpose of serving veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction. PVA aims to be a leading advocate for healthcare, research and education, member benefits and civil rights.

No matter what challenges or issues may come between us, one thing that unites all Americans is our respect and gratitude for the heroes who serve to protect our freedom and democracy. That’s why on Veterans Day we come together to honor all our veterans – particularly our wounded warriors and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

This year on Veterans Day, November 11th, we come together as a nation to pay tribute to all of the men and women who have proudly served in our nation’s military.

As we pause to remember our past, let us also remember our present, where at this very moment our servicemen and women are putting themselves in harm’s way for the cause of freedom and democracy. We salute their courage, strength and dedication to these high ideals. We pledge our gratitude for the sacrifices they will make; and we vow to never forget.

If you’re a veteran who lives with SCI/D, the PVA could be a great resource for you. To Make it easy, We put together a list of PVA regional service offices and local chapters.
