SRHS honors hundreds of working, volunteer veterans
If he was 18, Kevin Siegmund would enlist in the military again.

Siegmund, who works in Information Technology at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System (SRHS), retired from the United States Army in 2005 after serving for 21 years. He served in five overseas assignments, including Turkey, Iraq and in Asia. 

“At some point, all veterans signed a blank check to our nation and we weren’t really sure what it was for until we were in the middle of it,” Siegmund said. “That takes an element of courage that I greatly respect.”

Siegmund is one of more than 250 veterans who work or volunteer throughout SRHS. These associates are being honored during a Veterans Day ceremony and luncheon on Friday at Spartanburg Medical Center. 

“Throughout our country’s history, brave men and women have answered the call of duty to defend our nation,” said Bruce Holstien, CEO of SRHS. “Veterans Day is a time to remember and pay tribute to the men and women of the U.S. armed forces. As American’s we owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to our veterans, who during peace or war, have demonstrated steadfast commitment guarding our cherished principals. Many of our SRHS family have served in the military, and I would like to extend my personal thanks to all of you for your courage and service. We are grateful.”

Originally commemorated as Armistice Day, the holiday marked the end of World War I. The Allies and Germany signed the armistice officially ending the war on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918.

Tim Fagan, a veteran of the Marines and Air Force who works in SRHS’s quality department, especially remembers those who fought in World War I.

“On Veterans Day, I think of how the day originated. The United States joined the war because they had a sense of duty to the world, though we weren’t in imminent danger,” Fagan said. 

SRHS civilian associates also took time to thank veterans. 

“Veterans Day is an amazingly special day set aside to thank our veterans — actually they are heroes,” said Tiffany Wilson, who at Spartanburg Medical Center. “We’re able to thank them for dedicating their lives for us without asking for anything in return; all for our freedom and democracy.”

Spartanburg Regional honors the sacrifices of all who have served our country, and is thankful to those veterans who chose to continue their service as part of our staff.
