In thinking about my weekly message, I of course had to say something about Memorial Day. I did not know when it was established, so I went to Wiki. Here is the short form description.
Memorial Day: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. “Memorial Day is a U.S. federal holiday wherein the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces are remembered. The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the final Monday or May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union  and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.”
I want us all to remember the people who served our country and sacrificed everything. What I would also ask you to consider is, what are you doing in your companies to hire the amazing and talented vets who are lucky enough to return?
