On this Memorial Day, the people of our nation will reflect on the sacrifices of our veterans and service members, from the past, in the present, and on to the future. It is a time for solemn acknowledgment of all this country represents, and what our military has done to protect the beliefs of freedom and democracy that America holds dear.
When you consider that the United States has over 21.8 million veterans and about 1.5 million active duty service members, chances are that someone in your family or a close friend has served our nation. We appreciate the courage shown and patriotism shared by these brave men and women that has inspired Americans through the calm times of peace and darkest days of war.
We ask that you join us in observing, in your own way, a moment of remembrance on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, 2012. There is no shortage of ways in which you can do this. Look to your neighborhood or town for public ceremonies and parades, place flowers or a flag at a veteran’s memorial, or wear a red poppy flower for the day – it’s the official Memorial Day flower. As for a private reflection, you can pause for 3 p.m. local time for a national moment of silence, or take time to tell the veterans and service members in your life that you appreciate their service in defense of our country.
From all of us here at PACE Staffing Network, we appreciate your business and look forward to continuing to serve you throughout the year.
