Land of the free: Thank a Veteran

Veterans Day is designated as November 11th, and this year the designated federal holiday is observed on Monday, November 12th.  The Cuyahoga Group is a veteran-owned and operated family company, and we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to all United States veterans, active military members, and their families.

To the following U.S. veterans who are part of The Cuyahoga Group team, we thank you for service and sacrifice:

 

Jim Variglotti, founder and CEO of The Cuyahoga Group,
U.S. Navy veteran who served honorably during the Vietnam War.

 

Vince Variglotti, President of The Cuyahoga Group,
served honorably for seven years as lieutenant in the U.S Navy during Enduring Freedom.

 

Gerald Ritch, Specialist Fifth Class,
served honorably for two years in U.S. Army, from July 1966 to June 1968.

 

Colton (Colt) Costello, served honorably for six years as Sergeant in the U.S. Army.

 

Tracey Boyer served honorably for eight years as Private First Class in the U.S. Army Reserve.

On Veterans Day and every day, let us renew our commitment to showing our support and appreciation to our veterans and their families—they are all American heroes.

 

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”—Arthur Ashe

 

Tennis legend Arthur Ashe served as First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. In 1993, he was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and is named for the ESPY Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

 

No person, and no veteran, should be homeless in our nation

Homelessness in our nation is a tragic reality, and many of those living on the streets are United States veterans. One of the reasons for the high number of homeless veterans is  linked to PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)—directly connected to their service to our nation.  For information on how to help, and to review top-rated charities whose mission is to offer treatment, housing and supportive services to homeless veterans, click here.
