APWU Web News Article 63-2012, May 24, 2012
As Memorial Day approaches, the APWU reminds union members to honor the extraordinary men and women of the Armed Forces who have sacrificed so much in service to our nation. Throughout our history, Americans have been protected by patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice to advance the cause of freedom.
“On Memorial Day, we remember those who died serving our country, as well as those who survived the hardships of war,” said APWU President Cliff Guffey. “With our nation engulfed in two wars, the men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan are in our thoughts and prayers,” he said.
“America must honor them while they serve — and support them when they return home,” he said.
