Brothers and Sisters,

We are forever grateful to our veterans for their service and sacrifice. And at Operating Engineers Local 4, we’re honored to provide them career opportunities in the union building trades. Each of their stories is unique, and deserves to be shared.

Second-Year Apprentice Jose Navarro’s Letter to the Editor was published in the latest edition of the Revere Journal. He writes how his time as a Marine prepared him for his apprenticeship, and how he learned about our great Local through Helmets to Hardhats.

Jose’s story is one example of how we can all continue to support our veterans when they return home.

Thank you, Jose, for bringing attention to this valuable program, and to all of our veterans for your service.

In Solidarity,

Bill McLaughlin
