On this Memorial Day, the OPCMIA honors all who gave their lives to defend democracy in the United States and Canada, including our fellow members. We owe our freedom to their courage and heroism.

While Memorial Day is also the traditional start of summer and a time for barbecues, picnics and other festivities, I hope our members will also find the time to pause, thank and pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that we have the quality of life we do today. And I hope we’ll always strive to uphold their legacy in everything we do.

I wish our members and their families all the best on this important day.

Kevin Sexton
General President
