On Memorial Day, TIAA joins all Americans in remembering the men and women of the armed forces – the difference makers who gave their lives to protect our world and make it a better place. These heroes made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms.
We can benefit from the example set by these brave service men and women who died in the service of our great nation. These fallen heroes were individuals of all races, genders, creeds and backgrounds. They came together as one team, leaving no one behind and constantly focusing on the common cause of protecting and defending our nation.
I would also like to extend a very special thank you to surviving family members of the fallen. The freedoms we enjoy today have been earned through the dedication and sacrifice of your loved ones who died in service to our country.
