Honor the Brave Memorial Day 2017

Air Cargo Carriers, LLC. on May 26th, 2017

Monday, May 29th 2017 is Memorial Day.  Here are some interesting facts about this Federal Holiday!

How did the Memorial Day Holiday Originate?
Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the Union war dead with flowers.
By the 20th century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions, celebrated on different days, had merged, and Memorial Day eventually extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service.
It marks the start of the unofficial summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end. (Source: Wikipedia)
What does the Poppy Stand For?  
“In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie…

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.”

Poem by John McCrea

Some Other Interesting Memorial Day Facts: 

On Memorial Day, the flag of the United States is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position, where it remains only until noon. It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.

The half-staff position remembers the more than one million men and women who gave their lives in service of their country. At noon, their memory is raised by the living, who resolve not to let their sacrifice be in vain, but to rise up in their stead and continue the fight for liberty and justice for all.  (Source:  Wikipedia)

EAA AirVenture 2016

2016 was our 1st year attending EAA as an exhibitor, in the Education/Career Center. We didn’t know what was in store for us at an event that gathered over 500,000 attendees. All I can say is “outstanding”! It was a huge success, meeting people from all walks of life around the globe. New employees, contacts and old friends were made and met. If you didn’t happen to stop by plan on it for 2017.

The lucky winner of the DHL B767 die cast model was B. LeBaron, an inspiring pilot from Utah. Congratulations and we cannot wait until the day you show up to ground school.

A special thanks goes out to our team managing the booth.
