Happy Memorial Day from Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado!

We are so thankful to be able to treat and help many active duty military, veterans, and spouses and dependents of service men and women in the Colorado Springs area.  Since we have the Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, and Peterson AFB all in our community, we have many opportunities to be able to serve those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

I had the privilege of treating a patient recently who was a prisoner of war in Vietnam.  I was again reminded about the humble sacrifice that so many who have gone before us have made, so we can live in a safe and beautiful place like Colorado Springs.  

Although we can often thank the military men and women in our community for their service, Memorial Day reminds us that there are many men and women that we can no longer thank, because they gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Even in a time of COVID-19, I hope you all can spend some time today with friends and family in a safe way, and take some time to remember how many great Americans have given their blood, sweat, and tears, so you I can have the freedoms we enjoy today.  Happy Memorial Day from our whole team at Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado!
