Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Gudrun Hofstad.

Gudran served as a Lieutenant in the United States Army Women’s Medical Specialist Corps from 1950-1953. Her primary occupation was physical therapist and provided aid during the Korean War.

She was trained at the U.S. Army Medical Field Service School at Fort Sam Houston and worked with returning veterans at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

After marrying and raising four children, she continued her vocation as a physical therapist and even volunteered at the VA hospital near her home.

Now 88-years-old, Gudrun has maintained a lifelong connection with VA, and participates each year in the Veterans Day parade and festivities where she lives.

Thank you for your service, Gudrun!

Veteran Of The Day is Noah Currier. Noah served the United States Marine Corps from 2000-2003 as a gunner with 1st Marine Division’s 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion and served in Afghanistan just after 9/11 and Iraq during the initial invasion in 2003. Just three days after he returned from Iraq a truck driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel collided with Noah’s truck. He suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the chest down.

For six years Noah spiraled, battling depression and hopelessness; but a friend pushed him toward VA and DAV’s Winter Sports Clinic, where Noah found his spirit again. Today Noah has no limitations in his mind; he is always oscar mike (military radio term meaning “On the Move”). Noah would eventually launch a foundation with the same name and spends his time helping other paralyzed and wheelchair bound Veterans recover mentally and physically from devastating injuries.

Thank you for your service, Noah! Semper Fi!
