First and foremost on behalf of the entire leadership team I would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. More importantly I would like to thank all those who have served our country. Specifically I would like to thank all those within our “union family” who have given of themselves so that we may enjoy freedom. I would also like to remember all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our country.
