Dear Brothers and Sisters,
On this Veterans Day and Remembrance Day we are all aware of dangers around the globe and the men and women in uniform across the United States and Canada who shield and protect us from them.
From the Middle East to the Pacific Rim of Asia and lands in between, we salute our service members and veterans. We honor their everyday sacrifices and the dedication that means months and years spent far from home. And we honor all those who have paid the ultimate price. Their courage must never be forgotten.
In the 114 years since our founding, tens of thousands of LIUNA members have answered the call to serve their countries. As our veterans have served us, we must also serve them – through Helmets to Hardhats, by recruiting them into good jobs, and by supporting programs and policies that honor and reward their service.
On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, we thank each and every veteran not just on this holiday, but every day. Let’s vow never to forget all those who have served our countries and sacrificed their lives to protect us. We are in their debt.
With kind regards, I am
