Independent Railway Supervisors Association


"The labor movement is people. Our
unions have brought millions of men and
women together, made them members
one of another, and given them
common tools for common goals. Their
goals are goals for all America - and their
enemies are the enemies for progress.
The two cannot be separated."

"As we express our gratitude, we must
never forget that the highest
appreciation is not to utter words, but to
live by them."

" The American Labor Movement has
consistently demonstrated its devotion to
the public interest. It is, and has been,
good for all America."
John F. Kennedy

The Board of IRSA and all IRSA Members would like to express our sincere thanks to
all Veterans Of the US Armed Forces. We pay our respects, always remembering


A Veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or
reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life,
wrote a blank check made payable to
The United States of America,
for an amount of "up to and including their life."

The Board of IRSA would like to ask all Members, as we celebrate this Holiday Season, please remember
those who have served these United States of America and help support them anytime possible.
There are numerous ways to assist. Here is a link to the top 10 charities that support Veterans.
