Paying Tribute on Memorial Day

Who kept the faith and fought the fight;
The glory theirs, the duty ours.
~Wallace Bruce

On Memorial Day we remember all who died in service to their country. While the day is marked with celebrations, its true meaning should not be forgotten.  We ask that everyone pause for a moment and consider the courage and sacrifice required to put oneself in harm’s way to protect the rights and liberties of others. This Memorial Day we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  But our duty does not end there.

At PRIDE Industries, we create jobs for people with disabilities. An important part of our mission is serving those who have served; individuals who return with physical, emotional and mental scars which create obstacles to independence and self-sufficiency. We also work to provide opportunity for those who have served and simply have difficulty rejoining the workforce. We welcome our returning veterans, and this Memorial Day weekend, we honor our fallen heroes.

We encourage our employees, friends and supporters to use this space to share their own special remembrances, paying tribute to those who ‘kept the faith and fought the fight.’ Happy Memorial Day to all.
