On Memorial Day, We Remember

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in General on May 30, 2016.

At Kaplin Stewart, we recognize that America is great because of the people that serve her and its people. Those who work in the military, the police, and as firefighters are among our nation’s finest. They put their lives on the line every day to protect us all – asking for very little in return. Some – who we especially remember on Memorial Day – pay the ultimate sacrifice by laying their lives down in the line of duty. For that, we are eternally grateful. We could never repay that debt. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
