Labor Day message

  • Published

  • 43rd Airlift Wing Commander
As the Labor Day weekend approaches and people make plans to take advantage of the long weekend, it's important to be realistic about drive and rest times and to be extra safe while out having a good time with family and friends. Labor Day weekend is traditionally when we experience the most losses and injuries.
During this holiday, let's redouble our safety efforts. Each year, our Air Force family is touched by tragedy over the long weekend when individuals lose their lives in traffic accidents or recreational activities. I want everyone to return this Tuesday well rested and energized -- remember your Wingman. Let your supervisor know your plans, make arrangements if you plan to drink alcohol and always use operational risk management. Let's have a fun weekend as we do our best to keep ourselves and each other safe.
