MBA President's Message

In honor of Veteran's Day

In honor of Veteran's Day, I ask that each of you take a moment to think about - and thank - the veterans in our families, communities and profession who have given their service to our great country.

It is also critical that we remember the brave men and women who are actively serving in the military, for it is their sacrifice that allows us to live safe and fulfilling lives. They should be applauded for their service.

Throughout the commonwealth, families have had to grapple with the loss of their loved ones, especially challenging during this holiday-filled time of year. The lives of these individuals were cut short while supporting our nation.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I find it fitting that we give thanks to both our veterans for their past service and our active military for their continued service to our nation. They make us all proud.
