Remembering Memorial Day
Each year in the United States, Americans observe the Federal holiday, Memorial Day, the last Monday in May. It honors and remembers all men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Memorial Day is also a day to remember all loved ones who have passed away.
Traditionally on Memorial Day, the flag of the United States of America is raised briskly to the top of the staff then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position where it remains until noon. At noon, it is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.
When the flag is at half-staff, the position is in remembrance of the more than one million men and women who gave their lives for their country. Raising the flag at noon signifies the nation lives, that the country is resolved not to let their sacrifice be in vain but to rise up in their honor and continue to fight for liberty and justice for all.
If you are looking for ideas on how to observe Memorial Day consider attending a Memorial Day service in your community. Pay tribute in your own way in remembrance of service members who have died while serving. Or, visit a veterans’ cemetery to honor those who’ve impacted your life.
From all of us at International Dunnage and Superior Packaging, we remember and honor our veterans and loved ones who have passed away.
We Now Supply Anti-Slip Rubber Mats
Anti-slip mats are an important and reliable component for your professional load securing system. If you’re looking for a product that will secure and control movement of your shipments by railroad, over-the-road truck or container, we've got you covered! Non-slip rubber friction mats have become standard equipment in the professional transportation field and for good reason. When using non-slip mats, the friction force of the goods is in direct contact with the rubber mat. This significantly increases the coefficient of friction, ultimately preventing the load from slipping.
