On Veterans Day, OWC Salutes Those Who Have Served

Monday, November 11th, 2013 | Author:

globe-saluteVeterans Day is a time to remember and a time to give thanks. It’s a time to appreciate all of those who have served honorably in the military during times of war and during times of peace.

As always, we here at the OWC Blog (and across the entire company) would like to take the opportunity to gratefully acknowledge our veterans for serving our country and helping to preserve the freedom we all too often take for granted.

OWC is proud to have several veterans among its ranks and have several whose loved ones have served in the armed forces. The dedication and service to the founding principles of our country is an overwhelming example to all.

It is important to recognize that today’s world would be a different one without the service and sacrifices of all our service men and women. So today we thank all of our veterans – those that served and thankfully are still with us, and those that served and offered the ultimate sacrifice. OWC salutes!

OWC Closed to Observe Memorial Day

American Flag, Memorial Day

The American Flag just before sunrise today in Woodstock

OWC is closed today in honor and recognition of Memorial Day. In service to these United States of America, thousands have given their lives protecting and preserving that Freedom and Liberty for which she stands. Today we honor and commemorate our fallen with parades, speeches, and family observances.

This solemn day of remembrance was originally designated in 1868 to be recognized each year on the 30th of May. In 1971 Congress passed legislation to change the recognized day to instead fall on the last Monday of each May, effectively making it part of a three-day weekend. With respect to what this day is about, I do believe and without regard to a weekend or last Monday of a month, that this 1971 legislation should be undone. A great source of information on this important day and its history is the website www.USMemorialDay.org. Article Continues…

The American Flag lowered to half-mast at dawn

OWC proudly flies an American Flag at our headquarters and in compliance with Memorial Day decorum, it has been my personal honor to set our flag to half-mast at sunrise and then restore it to full mast at noon. The entire OWC team takes its responsibility to our members of the Armed Forces very seriously and we support their efforts far beyond honoring those who have lost their lives.

Words can hardly convey our thanks for Freedom and Liberty that they have protected with their lives. That we all have our choice of words and expressed opinions speaks to what they have accomplished. We remember and never forget those who paid the ultimate price for our Freedom with a moment of silence and the playing of Taps at 3pm local time.

American Flag at noon - high and proud - full-mast

Our sincere thanks and gratitude goes out to all those serving today and those who have served in our Armed Forces across time. We remember and honor all and always those that have fallen in the line of duty. On this day and everyday.

What’s more? It’s the little things throughout that can make a difference. When you see a member of our Armed Forces, consider walking over and saying thank you. For all the words we can say, this action can mean the world to those serving and protecting ours.

OWC Remembers Our Veterans

Veterans Day is for thanking all those who have served honorably in the military during times of war and during times of peace. We here at the OWC Blog (and, indeed, the entire company) would like to take the opportunity to gratefully acknowledge our veterans for serving our country and helping to preserve the freedom we all too often take for granted.

OWC is proud to have several veterans among its ranks and have several whose loved ones have served in the armed forces. The dedication and service to the founding principles of our country is an overwhelming example to all.

All of us here recognize that today’s world would be a different one without the service and sacrifices of all our service men and women. So today we thank all of our veterans – those that served and thankfully are still with us and those that served and offered the ultimate sacrifice. In that same vein, we’d like to recognize one of our local shipping partners, JA Frate, for commemorating the recently-fallen heroes of McHenry County, Illinois, with this memorial on one of their trucks.
