This weekend, most people working in construction will have a long weekend to celebrate Memorial Day, and honor in our hearts those who died serving our country.
Growing up, I remember spending Memorial Day weekend visiting cemeteries where my family’s loved ones were laid to rest, both veterans and non-veterans.
Yesterday, I saw on Facebook that my cousin’s son was accepted into the Navy. I was pleased to see the encouragement that the post was receiving, despite all the mixed emotions concerning the military in this country. Men such as these who serve our beloved country ensure we remain The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
We have many people in our cherished construction industry who also serve every day fearlessly on job-sites despite the fact that every day in America there is a construction fatality.
This Memorial Day, we are featuring articles we have written in the past that provide you with an opportunity to honor those who served in the Military, as well as those who lost their lives in both the Military and in Construction.
