Today we remember and honor those who have served, those who are serving, and those who will serve. We have our veterans to thank for defending our freedoms and way of life during times of peace and turmoil.
Many of our own members have served or are currently serving in the Armed Forces. We honor them, not just today, but every day, for their contribution and sacrifice for our nation. The District Council continuously supports organizations like Helmets to Hardhats and Jared Allen’s Homes 4 Wounded Warriors in an effort to assist and guide veterans to find good-paying jobs and a stable lifestyle after returning home.
On behalf of the New York City District Council of Carpenters, I would like to thank each and every veteran for his or her service. It is because of dedicated people like you that we can thrive in our communities and exercise our freedoms. I would also like to urge everyone to keep those who are serving in their thoughts and prayers so they may return home to their families and friends unharmed.
With gratitude for your service to America on Veterans Day and always. Happy Veterans Day and God bless!
