Happy Memorial Day

Event Date: 
Monday, May 29, 2017 (All day)

On behalf of everyone here at IBEW1820 we want to wish and you and yours a Happy Memorial Day weekend.  Today, we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our great country and protect the many freedoms that we take for granted. Please take time to remind young people in your family of Memorial Days true meaning. 

"The Americans who rest beneath these beautiful hills and in sacred ground across our country and around the world, they are why our nation endures. Each simple stone marker arranged in perfect military precision, signifies the cost of our blessings. It is a debt we can never fully repay. But it is a debt well never stop trying to fully repay, by remaining a nation worthy of their sacrifice. By living our own lives the way the fallen lived theirs - a testament that greater love has no other than this than to lay down your life for your friends."-President Barack Obama
