OP you are correct that there was no firm wide communication from PwC, we went from remembering George Floyd to Celebrating Pride. Buried in the remembering George Floyd email was a reminder that the Memorial Day weekend started early.

Honor them yourself if you want to, do you need someone to hold your hand while you do it?

I’m a troop and I don’t care whether or not PwC says anything. In fact, I can personally speak to the number of people at the organization who have bent over backwards to help fellow service members and veterans, which means much more than some boilerplate message. Have you served or lost anyone close to you who served? If not, why does it matter to you? If so, aren’t there better things you can do to honor those individuals than complain that a random company didn’t say enough thank yous?

Never realized so many people hate the military Lol. I don’t agree with most of the wars they’ve gotten into but damn imagine dying for someone you never knew just to get crapped on

Agreed ^

Nearly every country on this earth has a military (except Switzerland) and an agenda rooted in “protecting” its sovereignty from external and internal threats. You might be confusing political agenda with the true purpose of an actual military, and for you to say “US murder machine” sounds fairly uneducated and disrespectful to the very country YOU live in and where YOU enjoy so many trivial things like, your cup of Starbucks this morning or your prime 2 day shipping or your kombucha from Whole Foods or..being able to post your thoughts to this very forum.

You. You make me better. I’ll wake up better tomorrow knowing you exist 😘

Memorial Day is not about honoring those who have served. It's about honoring those who died while serving.

Caught up today with college BFF. We are both highly educated, historically super ambitious/driven, have “impressive jobs.” But we are both now mid 30s with young kids and completely demotivated at work despite having interesting jobs. Is this a phase? Is this “natural”? Is it because of too much sleep deprivation from babies? Anyone experienced this but got out of the rut? I want to feel excited about work again, not just going thru the motions for a paycheck
