To the TWU Local 591 Membership:

Memorial Day is about remembering and honoring every single man and woman who has died for our freedoms -- men and women who were mommies and daddies, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, patriots, incredible Americans and really, really great friends.
You want to honor and celebrate patriotism and the military this Memorial Day.
