A Remembrance of Those Who Made the Supreme Sacrifice to Protect Our Freedoms
May 22, 2020 (Falls Church, VA) The International Chiropractors Association (ICA) remembers, honors, and is eternally grateful to all who wore the uniform of one of our services and paid the ultimate price so that we can remain a free people. This Memorial Weekend, in this 125th anniversary year of chiropractic, occurs under circumstances that none of us could have imagined a mere six months ago. Stay at home orders, businesses shuttered, face masks, 24×7 news about the ‘unseen enemy’ Coronavirus-19.
We are resilient, just as our ancestors were. Memorial Day began shortly after the end of the United States Civil War which ended in 1865 to honor the fallen soldiers. It is a day of honor that germinated in small communities around the country eventually to become an official federal day to honor all the men and women who died in service to the nation.
As chiropractors, one way we honor the fallen is by taking care of our veterans and active duty military in the here and now.
ICA members all around the world provide health preserving chiropractic care, keeping many veterans and military members off addictive opioids.
This Memorial weekend, the ICA is honored to launch our relationship with Whiskey Kilo Co, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business to share with ICA members, the entire chiropractic community and public hand sanitizers made from Kentucky whiskey and related equipment, all made in the United States. The company has agreed to donate 10% of sales we generate back to the ICA. Help us grow our research fund, by shopping
Whiskey Kilo Co!
These are unprecedented times we are living in. Like the ICA, one of our new friends at Whiskey Kilo, LCDR Greg Keeley, USN (ret) is international. He has the distinction of service in both the Royal Australian Navy and the United States Navy serving in combat roles in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pacific.
Dr. Stephen P. Welsh, ICA President stated, “While Memorial Day is considered an American holiday, we honor all who serve their country, and hope that at 3 pm on Monday, you will pause and honor in your own way those who made the supreme sacrifice in duty to their nation.”
