Memorial Day: Respect & Remembrance

By Natasha Lee, CEO of Floyd Lee Locums

Today is one of the most meaningful days of the year for Floyd Lee Locums. In fact, every Memorial Day is. Like many communities, organizations and individuals across the country, we get to say, “Thank You,” in our own way to those who gave their lives for our country.

That ultimate sacrifice echoes in our values as a nation, in what we stand for, and, most importantly, in the world we’re creating for the next generation.

For the widowed spouse, Memorial Day is every day. For the service members who are home temporarily or transitioning to veteran status, the day carries both happy and difficult memories that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. For the country, it is our duty to support these brave men and women—and lift them up so they aren’t left behind.

At Floyd Lee Locums, that mission is personal.

That’s why we founded Operation: Career Freedom, a program dedicated to placing qualified service members and veterans in healthcare positions. In addition, our collaboration with the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) allows us to highlight jobs that may be right for family members of those serving, or who have served.

These initiatives alone are a start. But this Memorial Day, consider if there are charities or events you can take part in to join in the celebration.

Want to join us in making a difference? If you have an event or project that you think Floyd Lee Locums would be a good fit for, email us at Or, if you prefer to donate money instead of time, consider giving to the Wounded Warrior Project, which offers support to service members of all stripes.
