Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This Memorial Day weekend, many of us will spend time with friends and family and enjoying a day off that marks the transition to summer. But while we have a holiday, tens of thousands of brave men and women in the Armed Services – including many LIUNA members – will have no respite. They and their families accept daily hardships and dangers in order to protect our democracy and freedom.
We owe these patriotic men and women, some of whom made the ultimate sacrifice, losing their lives in defense of our nation, a debt of gratitude. This weekend, take a moment to reflect and honor all those who have served. As we do so, let us also continue to build a stronger LIUNA and country, so that returning veterans have opportunities to prosper when their service has ended.
On behalf of myself and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I wish each and every one of you an enjoyable and meaningful Memorial Day.
