Honoring Our Veterans
On behalf of Local 29, we would like to extend our gratitude to all Veterans who have served and continue to serve. They selflessly chose to join our Armed Forces knowing that by doing so they were volunteering to take on sacrifices many Americans will never know. I would ask that tomorrow each of us take a moment to reflect on the men and women who have served our country; and if possible, reach out to a service member not only to thank them for their heroism but to also remind them that their sacrifices will not be forgotten.
Local 29, along with the Veterans Committee, would like to take this day to honor Military Veterans and acknowledge the opportunities their sacrifices have afforded us.
Anyone interested in joining the Veterans Committee please call the Union Hall.
Union Veterans Council
The Union Veterans Council brings working-class veterans together to speak out on the issues that impact us most, especially the need for good jobs and a strong, fully funded and staffed VA.
Additionally, we hold private enterprise and elected officials accountable for their words and actions. We believe wholeheartedly that the ability for someone to self-identify as "pro-veteran" isn't determined by what lapel pin they don or what catchphrase they employ; veterans face real issues that require real actions-constructive actions that lead to positive solutions.
At the Union Veterans Council, we fight every day for those who have fought for us.
