Memorial Day - Remember Those Who Gave All

This Memorial Day, Monday May 27th, please take a moment to stop and commemorate those women and men who served and made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. There are many ways to participate with local events and a national moment of remembrance that takes place at 3:00 pm local time (your local time).

While this day is once a year, it’s important to remember every day that our freedoms are not free. Our country is closing in on 250 years as a beacon of freedom to people and countries around the world. But we should always keep in mind that this was the result of the many sacrifices over the years of our dedicated women and men in uniform, as well as everyday citizens who were called into action. 

I’m sure many of us know veterans and those in our family history who proudly served, or other local or national heroes. Now is the time to recognize them. I’m also always proud of the role our company has played through the years. We are closing in on 125 years in business - half the time our country has been in existence. And we have always done our part to secure and protect our freedoms during that time.

Enjoy the Memorial Day holiday and remember those who gave all in service of our country and our freedoms.
