PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Another amazing summer is coming to an end and you have done an outstanding job maintaining our safety. We've had no fatalities, no serious injuries and we've done well remaining vigilant about our personal health.
Continue to utilize your "safety sense" as it's critical to the welfare of your team members, yourself and your family. Follow safety guidance on your job, wear your personal protective equipment, don't drink and drive and protect yourself against the continuing hazard we battle, the cell phone. The burden placed on your senses makes texting and driving a no-win situation.
Now ... enjoy this extended Labor Day weekend. This unique American holiday is used to recognize you for your efforts and hard work over the past year. Enjoy that barbeque, take a dip in the ocean or visit some of the attractions the Sunshine State has to offer. Use this long weekend to relax, refresh and prepare to support this Wing in our monumental task of providing space launch capability and battlefield control.
