As this weekend approaches and millions of people prepare to kick-off the summer by celebrating Memorial Day weekend, let’s take a moment to remember the true meaning behind this holiday. The true meaning of Memorial Day is about remembrance. It’s about remembering and honoring the brave soldiers that answered the call to defend our country and that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our liberties and for our freedoms. From the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard, these men and women have made the ultimate sacrifice to this great nation and have provided a blanket of freedom that allows us to sustain a free society. Memorial Day should reflect on the heroes of generations past, and those whose daily work is honorable and heroic. It’s a day to remind us of the true cost of freedom and the human price of such great sacrifice. We ask you to honor all those who have gallantly served our nation to provide the freedoms that we will all share together during this weekend’s holiday.
Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman and Darby LLP takes great pride serving military veterans who continue to give back to our community. Whether it be working in public safety from law enforcement, fire and rescue, and corrections by keeping us safe, to the communications workers, bus operators, nurses, teachers and so many others who make an impact on our day to day lives. We appreciate the service of those who serve our community with distinction and honor. Therefore, we take this opportunity to thank all military personnel who continue to fight for our freedoms and to honor those brave men and women that have lost their lives defending our great nation.
We would ask that you also take time to remember and honor those that have sacrificed.; In the year 2000, Congress passed The National Moment of Remembrance Act as a way of honoring America’s fallen heroes. This Act designated 3:00 p.m. on Memorial Day as a moment of remembrance. Please take a minute on Monday, May 30 at exactly 3:00 p.m. to reflect and honor those men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
We wish you all a healthy and safe holiday weekend.
