How You Can Help U.S. Veterans

Posted on Wed, Nov 01, 2017

"The veterans of our military service have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment" - Judd Gregg, former Governor of New Hampshire and former U.S. Senator

Veterans Day honors the brave men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces who have fought and sacrificed for our country. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 18.5 million military veterans in the United States as of 2016.

 

It is important to note that there are 4 million veterans who have a service-related disability that occurred during their time of military service and/or continues to interfere with their daily life after their military service. 

 

Amramp is proud to join the nation in giving thanks to all of those who made the sacrifice to protect the United States at home and abroad.

Amramp Salutes Veterans - Veterans' Day 2015 

When President Wilson first proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day he said, "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…"

Here at Amramp, we also wanted to express our gratitude to those who serve and have served our country and recognize their sacrifice with these images we have collected of each of the five branches of the military. All of us send our gratitude to those currently fighting overseas and to their families. Thank you for your service.

Installing wheelchair ramps serves as reminder of Veterans’ sacrifices

Posted on Fri, Nov 12, 2010

With the passage of another Veterans Day, we at Amramp would like to propose that Americans think of both active duty and veterans every day.

 

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan come home to our communities when we welcome soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines: Nearly all of Amramps’ independent owners have supported such homecomings, bittersweet as families cope with service members’ injuries.

 

All 40 Amramp franchise locations nationwide, strive to make these homecomings as seamless as possible, returning these heroes to their families as quickly as possible once they are discharged from medical facilities, installing modular ramps generally within 48 hours.

 

In some cases, the wheelchair ramp is only temporary. As happy as our professional installers are to provide the ideal ramp rental for every situation, we’re equally thrilled when that ramp is no longer needed.

 

In long-term cases, Amramp provides the ideal wheelchair ramp solution that can hack almost any weather. Whether it’s long-term, short-term, or uncertain, Amramp is committed to making sure our customers, veterans or not, are satisfied.

 

Your home should be welcoming you, not worrying you.
