A Message from the CEO of OsteoMed: Walt Humann
On Monday, we will celebrate Memorial Day, one of our nation’s oldest and most significant holidays, born of our shared American heritage. Together, we recall the glory and sacrifice of all who have set their personal aspirations aside for the preservation of our society. Whether it is the doughboys of World War I, our Greatest Generation in World War II, our Cold Warriors who served in Korea and Vietnam, the liberators of Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan, or countless others who served and sacrificed in smaller American actions around the world, we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the men and women who took up arms against the enemies of the United States, laying down their lives to ensure a brighter future for the loved ones they left behind. As I contemplate what this holiday means to me, I am humbled by what others have done and continue to do to pursue our rights and freedoms.
This reflection gave me pause to think about how grateful I am for each of you who serve not only OsteoMed, but make a difference in people’s lives around the world. A career at OsteoMed is more than just a job. It’s a unique opportunity to live life with a purpose. This is where we find amazing people who believe in our mission to improve patient outcomes through our world class products. Countless people have had their lives dramatically improved by your hard work.
To kick off summer and in addition to honoring those who have served our country, I want to take a few minutes and say thank you for your dedication, perseverance when times are challenging and for making OsteoMed a great place to be. I am honored to work beside and with you all. As we head into the second half of the year, I am confident we will all remain focused on our goals and will drive to make 2012 another strong year for OsteoMed. Again, thank you for all you do for us – together we make a great team!
As Americans, may we never forget those who fought for our freedom, and may we celebrate the lives of those who have truly made America the land of the free and the home of the brave. Please have a safe, relaxing and happy Memorial Day!
