Once again and every year since the Civil War we have a Holiday to honor our own, those in uniform who have died while serving in our nation's armed forces. We hear it every year, that this is a day of rememberance so that precious lives were not lost in vain. Many of our members have served in the armed forces and some are in the service of our country's armed forces today. Among our members in IBEW Local 320, we have Brothers, Sisters, Sons, Daughters, Husbands and Wives on active duty today. As each of them wears the uniform, they put themselves in harms way to protect us and keep us safe. Something that should be in our thoughts each day as well as our gratitude and hopes that each one will return home to rejoin their families...our families.
Please take the time to reach out and thank our men and women in uniform and then take some time to reflect on the sacrifices made by those who have died in the military service. Please support the efforts, in our workplace headquarters, to send supplies and help pay for shipping of supplies to members in the armed forces whenever you can. Thank you for all that you do to support our troops, after all they are family. I wish us all a good and a safe Holiday, one to remember as we enjoy our families and our freedoms.
Yours in Solidarity,
