Memorial Day: A Day of Remembrance and Honor

Dear RMEF Family,

The three-day weekend marks the unofficial kickoff of summer. It’s a great opportunity to fire up the grill, go camping or maybe spend some quality time with family and friends. 

I urge you to enjoy such precious times yet I also hope we can all set aside a little time to stop and consider what Memorial Day is all about. It was established to honor and remember those who are serving, have served and have served and died while representing all of us in the United States Armed Forces. We all have ties, whether direct or indirect, to our military. Their selfless service led to the many freedoms we all enjoy in this great nation today. 

As an RMEF family, we have many veterans among our ranks—both past and present. Our thoughts and gratitude go out to you and your families. The individual and family sacrifices allow each us the opportunity to live our lives the way we do today. In the case of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, it allows us continue our work together of ensuring our mission.

To all our vets, both present and those who since passed on, thank you for your service! 

Gratefully,

M. David Allen
RMEF President and CEO
