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
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.
