In Remembrance of Veterans

In Remembrance of Veterans: 

On this Veterans Day and Remembrance Day we proudly salute the men and women in uniform across the United States and Canada. Whether based far from home or on reserve and at the ready in communities across our nations, the sacrifices of our Armed Forces make it possible for us to exercise our rights and freedoms.

In the 115 years since our founding, tens of thousands of LIUNA members have been among those who have stood for us and our nations. It is our solemn obligation to continue to stand with them by supporting programs such as Helmets to Hardhats, which reward their service with good family-supporting jobs, and by fighting for policies that meet veterans’ needs when they return to civilian life.

The dedication and willingness of these men and women to encounter danger and to pay its price – from lost time with their families to the loss of life and limb – demonstrates an integrity and courage that we must never forget and which must always inspire us.

On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, let us mark this holiday and every day by thanking our veterans. They are the strong, proud and united defenders of our nation, and we will always be in their debt.
