This Year on Memorial Day, We Honor the Heroes

Rory Cooper | Via HERL | May 27, 2020

Memorial Day serves as a time to reflect on the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces, their families, friends, and all their loved ones. This year on Memorial Day, we honor the heroes, including people on the front lines of COVID-19, who gave their lives to defend our freedoms and way of life. No social distance or coronavirus restrictions will hinder our solemn remembrance of these patriots. This year millions of Americans have arisen to the challenge to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. I am proud that the Team at the Human Engineering Research Laboratories, many of whom are Veterans, have volunteered to support people in need, vulnerable populations, healthcare providers, and Veterans. HERL has been making and providing Face Shields, Face Masks, Food and Hygiene Supplies, and Test Swabs.
