SUBJ/LABOR DAY MESSAGE 2014//
GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. LABOR DAY IS A CHANCE FOR US TO RECOGNIZE THE HARD WORK AND INGENUITY OF AMERICAN CITIZENS WHOSE DEDICATION CONTRIBUTED SIGNIFICANTLY TO THIS GREAT NATION'S PROSPERITY. TRADITIONALLY, LABOR DAY MARKS THE END OF SUMMER AND PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE FINAL SOCIAL GATHERINGS AND RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES OF THE SEASON.
2. AS YOU ENJOY THIS WELL DESERVED BREAK WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS, NEVER FORGET THAT THE MARINE CORPS NEEDS EACH OF YOU TO RETURN TO DUTY SAFELY, REFRESHED, AND PREPARED TO ANSWER THE NATION'S CALL. LEADERS, ENGAGE WITH EACH OF YOUR MARINES, BE FAMILIAR WITH THEIR PLANS AND HELP THEM IDENTIFY RISK ASSOCIATED WITH THOSE PLANS. WITH THE ACTIVE PARTICIPATION OF EVERY MARINE WITHIN OUR CORPS, WE CAN PRESERVE OUR MOST PRECIOUS ASSET, THE INDIVIDUAL MARINE, SAILOR AND CIVILIAN MARINE.
3. SEMPER FIDELIS, JAMES F. AMOS, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
