CONTACT: Jerri Franz, 850-413-2842
As our nation prepares to celebrate Armed Forces Day 2010 on May, 15, 2010, Florida CFO Alex Sink issued the following statement today to commend and honor the men and women serving in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and the National Guard and Reserve around the world:
“Most of us spend our weekends with our families – at the beaches, in our backyards, or maybe in parks watching our children play,” said CFO Sink. “This weekend, let’s be especially mindful of our brave men and women who are away from their families protecting us so we can safely spend time with ours. We owe each of them a tremendous debt of gratitude, those who serve now and those who have served in the past, and especially the families of those who gave their lives to protect ours.”
Armed Forces Day is celebrated annually on the third Saturday in May. Yesterday CFO and State Marshal Alex Sink participated in the Florida Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve ceremony in Tampa, signing a statement supporting the men and women of the National Guard & Reserve.
