Next week, Americans all over the country will honor our nation’s fallen soldiers on Memorial Day. And while this holiday is dedicated to those we have lost, it’s also a reminder of the sacrifices made by members of the U.S. military.
Memorial Day honors the heroes who died while serving our beautiful country, though it is considered by many as the unofficial start of summer. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it is as important as ever for everyone to be mindful that our collective health and safety is a top priority. Additionally, as communities across the country begin to reopen and more people go outdoors in public spaces, including parks and beaches, we remind everyone to properly dispose of their trash and recyclables. Litter on the ground can eventually end up in our waterways, harming the environment and animals.

The unofficial start to summer kicks off this weekend with cookouts, pool parties, and beach getaways. As a combat veteran who has lost friends to the scourge of war, I want to provide the following public service announcement. Enjoy the holiday weekend but please find time to celebrate Memorial Day the right way. Whatever you do, avoid these holiday greetings: “Thank you for your service” and “Happy Memorial Day.”

Quick and easy ways to get your workforce behind the meaning of Memorial Day
Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the US military. Originating during the Civil War, Memorial Day was declared a federal holiday in 1971. While businesses across the nation are closed, giving their employees the three-day weekend start to summer, it doesn’t mean you can’t observe and incorporate this day into your total CSR strategy.
No two career journeys are the same, and for military veterans, the road to civilian employment is often an entirely new, unfamiliar mission. In today’s digital economy, the skills people need to thrive are ever-changing, adapting with every innovation and technology that hits the market; a market that doesn’t always wait for veterans to end their deployments and return home.
