Labor Day message from From FORSCOM Commander
On Labor Day we reflect on the powerful social and economic achievements of America’s work force. We also appreciate the vital work of our Army Family — our Soldiers, civilian employees and Family members — who work tirelessly to further freedom’s cause. Our thoughts also focus on America’s deployed Soldiers, for whom Labor Day is another day working to protect our nation’s security.
For many of us, the Labor Day weekend is a last opportunity to enjoy warm weather activities and take to the road for a well-deserved break. Remember the basics: get plenty of rest before traveling, don’t drive or swim after consuming alcohol, use personal protective equipment, and don’t drive while distracted.
Make safety part of your plan. Before you do anything, from completing home projects, to preparing for a road trip, to going swimming, ask yourself, “What are the risks? What am I doing to mitigate them?” Be careful! Each and every one of you is vital to your fellow Soldiers, civilian co-workers and Families.
Your personal labor, commitment and sacrifice contribute greatly to our nation and to keeping our Army strong. Thank you for your service!
