On Memorial Day - Give Thanks to Those Who Serve

As we look forward to the Memorial Day weekend, we must remember that thousands of members of the armed services are far from home and family, and many are in or near war-zones. They yearn for the sounds of their children and spouses, and the everyday comforts we often take for granted. They are willing to give all – sometimes with the ultimate sacrifice of their lives – for our democracy and for our freedom. We owe a solemn debt of gratitude to all of our veterans on Memorial Day.

On behalf of the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I wish each and every one of you an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend and hope that you will also take time to remember those who have served and give thanks.
