Memorial Day on a Mountaintop

By Rob Doyle, President

Memorial Day on the Mountaintop with Rob

In this installment of Shipper’s Quarterly, I wanted to touch on a recent trip to the mountains of Colorado. While vacationing with family and some friends last week, we had the opportunity to traverse various mountain ranges but under some difficult conditions that required us to hike for part of it and use ATVs for other portions.

One particular goal was to ascend Engineer Pass (almost 13,000 feet in elevation) on Memorial Day in honor of our fallen heroes. Snowfall the night before and snow melt that day made the conditions less than ideal. We were determined to accomplish this goal, so we utilized ATVs and our hiking boots to get us to the top. The process took a bit longer than expected, but we made it to the extremely windy and snow-covered top of the mountain where we were unexpectedly welcomed with a tattered, yet very inspirational US flag.  Since this was Memorial Day, having Old Glory reward us by her rugged presence was very moving, heart-warming, and filled us with great pride.

As a company, we hold our veterans in high esteem, and while Memorial Day is not about the living, we still honor all of our veterans realizing the heavy heart of many veterans who lost brothers and sisters in arms during their time serving our country.  For this, we are very grateful for their sacrifice, and those who have given their life so that we can enjoy the freedom of democracy.   

Making it to the top of that mountain pass was our small way of honoring the fallen and making sure we accomplished our goal for that day.

As we just concluded Armed Forces Appreciation Month, Memorial Day and now head into Independence Day, TSG salutes all our veterans as we thank you for your service and for your hard work and dedication to The Shippers Group.
