On Memorial Day

This Memorial Day weekend, while many of us will have time to spend with friends and family, thousands of brave men and women in the armed services are far from home and family and living in daily danger. Their sacrifices and heroism and those who have willingly laid down their lives to protect our democracy and freedom must never be forgotten.

Our nation’s veterans deserve our honor, respect and appreciation on Memorial Day and every day of the year. On behalf of the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I wish each and every one of you an enjoyable holiday and hope that you will also take time to reflect on those who sacrificed themselves to keep us safe.
