Memorial Day is much more than a three-day weekend or what many refer to as the unofficial start of summer. For me and many of my colleagues at BGE, Memorial Day is an annual day of tribute to the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our great nation.
At BGE, we’re proud of the fact that many of our employees are veterans or currently serve in the National Guard and Reserves. I personally had the unique privilege of serving nearly 27 years as both a U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force officer in the Maryland National Guard and know first-hand the pride and honor that comes with service to one’s nation.
Since the fateful events of September 11, 2001, a renewed spirit and appreciation of our men and women in uniform has taken hold. Be it a sporting event, transits through airports or even commercials on television, the gratitude and admiration for our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen – regardless of whether they’re active duty or reservists - is palpable.
Whatever your plans may be for this Memorial Day weekend, BGE wishes you and yours a safe and meaningful holiday. For our customers, in particular, who are veterans or are currently serving in our nation’s armed forces, thank you for your selfless and dedicated service.
