We Salute You, Veterans of America

On this Veterans’ Day, Inogen would like to salute all Veterans of Armed Services who have served our country.

Veterans’ Day was originally established as a commemoration of Armistice Day that first signaled the end of World War I. After World War II and the Korean War the national holiday was officially changed to “Veterans’ Day” and would honor American veterans of all wars.

Today Veterans’ Day honors American veterans of armed services and of all wars. It is celebrated every November 11th, and observed on the 12th in years when the 11th falls on a Sunday, such as this year.

Did You Know?

– Armistice Day celebrated the cessation of hostilities between the Allies and Germany on November 11, 1918, but World War I didn’t officially end until seven months later when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919.

– 11:00am carries special significance on Veteran’s day, since it is the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

– Veterans’ Day was briefly observed during October in the 1970s, but after much confusion and disagreement, it was returned to November 11th in 1975.

Inogen serves veterans requiring medical oxygen by providing them with independence and mobility in everyday life. The Inogen One portable oxygen concentrators provide a single solution, meant for on the go and at home, day and night. They are lightweight and small, and have simple control functions and an easy-to-read LCD display. The Inogen One is covered by Medicare and many private insurances. You may qualify to get a concentrator at little or no additional cost.

“My favorite thing about Inogen is mobility, it is so easy to travel. I can be with my family when I please. I just get my Inogen One and go!”

Our goal is to help oxygen users reclaim their independence. Whether it’s getting out to a Veterans’ Day ceremony or just coffee with family and friends, lighter and smaller oxygen concentrators let you do what you want, when you want.

    I am a 100% disabled vet. I have chronic osteoarthritis, six back surgeries two neck, last February 2016. Washington State has taken us off opioids, So Nov 2, 2017, I will be having a spinal Stimulator placed in my back to reduce pain 80%. I am in a wheelchair now, but after the stimulator has been in awhile, I will be able to walk again. I have COPD, Emphysema and need a light oxy concentrator for walking, shortness of breath and Low oxygen. My 10 lb. oxy tank is just to heavy.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Philip, Inogen thanks you for your service to our country. That's exciting news that after you have your spinal stimulator put in that you should be able to walk again. To determine whether or not an Inogen portable oxygen concentrator is right for you, we encourage you to visit your local VA and ask your primary care doctor about Inogen.
