"They gave up their tomorrows for our todays"

Memorial Day weekend is here and all of us here at IBEW 1049 want to wish you and your family a safe and relaxing holiday. On Memorial Day we give thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice, those who gave all of their tomorrows so we can enjoy the freedoms we sometimes take for granted, such as freedom to be in a union and have a voice at work, today. Let's never forget the men and women who gave their lives in the name of our country, for us. Their unselfish devotion and outstanding courage should inspire us all to make their sacrifice meaningful. This Memorial Day is unlike those of years past - we won't be watching parades or attending memorials due to the pandemic.  With that in mind, we ask each of you to fly your flags high, talk to your children and grandchildren about Memorial Day's true meaning and keep those who are in harm's way serving overseas in your thoughts and prayers and celebrate being a citizen of the greatest country on earth.
