Notes from the President

Dear Colleagues,

This coming weekend, we will observe Memorial Day. Memorial Day often marks the start of summer and a 3-day weekend marked by BBQs and celebratory gatherings. Yet, as you go about your Memorial Day plans, please take time to pause and reflect on the sacrifices that make this day possible. Memorial Day is a day to honor the military personnel who have died while serving in the U.S. armed forces. It is because of the sacrifice of these courageous service members that we enjoy the freedoms and security of this great nation.

As we unite to honor those service members who have paid the ultimate price, let us also pause and honor the sacrifice of their family members and loved ones whose loss is felt every day at the dinner table and family events. Let us also acknowledge the more that 81,600 service members who never made it home and are currently still missing in action.

Let us always remember the sacrifice of every soldier. Happy Memorial Day.
