Each year, state employees receive a paid holiday, Memorial Day. This day provides an opportunity for all of us to remember the people who died while serving in our country's armed forces. North Carolina is thankful for the sacrifice of many of its citizens. The state is also grateful for those state employees who have served our country and who now serve our state.

In recognition of the sacrifices that the men and women of our military experience, Governor Cooper has declared May as Military Appreciation Month.
