Veterans Day 2019

By Dennis R. Pierce
BLET National President


INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, November 8 — On Veterans Day, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen wants all of our veterans to know how grateful we are for your service to our Nation. We thank you for your contributions and sacrifices, which have made our country free and strong.

Veterans Day is an important day of remembrance for our members. Our Brotherhood was founded on May 8, 1863, during the midst of the Civil War. Many of our Organization’s original members were veterans, having fought in the Civil War. Over the years and to the present day, our members have continued that proud tradition of service to America’s military heritage.

Behind every soldier who serves is a family who also serves, and they are also deserving of our respect and gratitude. On behalf of the entire BLET Advisory and our 56,000 members, we applaud and honor all veterans for your service and the sacrifices made by you and your families. Thank you from the bottom our hearts.
