ALABAMA'S FALLEN WORKERS

These are a few of the men and women that went to work in Alabama and were fatally injured never going home to their families at the end of their shift. We remember, honor and recognize these men and women for their dedication and hardwork. We would like to sincerely thank the families that shared their loved one's picture and their tragic loss with USMWF.

I lost my brother Sept Friday the 13th 2019.  Due to job negligence. This SCAR will be with my family and I forever. Going to work shouldn't result in a funeral arrangement. This has forever changed my life my only brother gone, just minutes after talking with our mom. 
I hope no one ever have to endure the pain and the illness associated with a loss such as tragic as we are experiencing every day of our lives.
