Veterans Day

Veterans Day

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month was declared as the date and time to end hostilities in World War I.

November 11 is now officially recognized as Veterans Day in which we pause to honor the contributions and sacrifice made by our many “citizen soldiers” who have fought and died for our freedom in all wars.

There is no question that diagnostic tests like an MRI can cause claustrophobia – or a debilitating fear of being in a confined space – accompanied by the stress and uncertainty of illness or injury.

But for our beloved veterans all these factors can be much worse as they are often compounded by prior life-threatening experiences.

Open MRIs are often the last resort for those who cannot endure being scanned in the confined space of a standard “closed” MRI. Washington Open MRI is the preferred provider of MRI scans for our Veterans Administration, and we are proud to assist our military veterans or any among us who have a great fear of being confined during this important diagnostic medical test.

For those who are or who have served we wish to offer our most heartfelt respect and thanks. For those who have passed may they rest in peace.

All of us at Washington Open MRI wish to offer our most sincere thanks to all veterans with a prayer recognized as commemorating the “War To End All Wars” or World War I:

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

   That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

    Loved and were loved, and now we lie

        In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

    The torch; be yours to hold it high.

    If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

        In Flanders fields.
