A message from Raymond James, Valor and VFAN leadership

Memorial Day is often filled with mixed emotions. While much of the nation celebrates by spending time with family and friends over a three-day weekend, this holiday means so much more than that.

The true meaning of the holiday calls us to remember and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice – those who gave their lives to defend and preserve the many freedoms we as Americans enjoy today.

As we honor fallen brothers and sisters in arms, we encourage you to pause at 3 p.m. (your local time) on Monday, May 29, for the national moment of remembrance. In addition, if you plan to display and lower the American flag, as we will be doing at Raymond James, please be sure to follow these guidelines from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

However you observe Memorial Day, we hope you take time to honor those who have given their all while serving our country.

With respect,Raymond James, Valor and VFAN leadership
