Wiley X,® Inc. asks Americans to pause this May 28 to remember what Memorial Day is all about — honoring the memory of the countless brave men and women who have given their lives to preserve our freedoms and way of life. As a veteran-owned company that has built its legacy providing state-of-the-art protective eyewear to combat soldiers in action around the world, Wiley X is keenly aware of the sacrifices our fighting forces make every day. This includes the ultimate sacrifice that an estimated 1.2 million Americans have made dating back to the Revolutionary War that gave birth to our great nation.
“As we gather to celebrate with our friends and families, enjoying picnics, backyard barbecues or trips to the country, we should all remember where these freedoms and rights come from,” said Myles Freeman, Jr., Co-Owner of Wiley X. “Memorial Day is one of our most meaningful Holidays, yet the true meaning can sometimes get lost in the fun of a three-day weekend. Remember the reason for the celebration this year — and if you happen to see a soldier or a veteran, let them know you appreciate them,” added Freeman.
