This weekend most people working in construction will get a long weekend to celebrate and honor in our hearts those who died while serving our country.
Growing up, I remember Memorial Day weekend visiting cemeteries where loved ones were laid after serving their time on earth, whether veterans or not.
Yesterday, I saw on Facebook 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 with Military service these days. It is men and women who serve our beloved country that keep us 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 jobsites and face sadly enough, that most every day in America there is a construction fatality.
This Memorial Day, we are featuring again articles from the past that give you an opportunity to honor those that served in the Military, and those that lost their lives to Military or Construction. Will you join me in giving in honor of someone you loved who is no longer with us this Memorial Day? The links are below.
