Remember.  This one powerful word crystallizes the true meaning of Memorial Day — as well as what leading military protective eyewear provider Wiley X® is reminding Americans everywhere to do this May 30th.


From coast to coast, Americans will enjoy three-day weekends in the country, caravans to the beach or maybe a backyard barbecue with close friends.  As a veteran-founded company with nearly three decades of experience protecting the vision of U.S. soldiers around the world, Wiley X has a perspective on this uniquely American holiday that is eager to share.

“Memorial Day provides us with a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some leisure time with friends and family,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “But it is so much more than just another day off of work. This special day was set aside for Americans to honor the memory of the millions of soldiers who’ve sacrificed their lives so we can enjoy the many freedoms that define our nation. I strongly encourage every American to make a conscious effort to remember the true meaning behind Memorial Day, this year and every year. And keep in mind that while it’s important to remember the past, we can’t lose sight of the fact that American servicemen and women around the world are still making this ultimate sacrifice for us today,” added Freeman.
