GEORGIA'S FALLEN WORKERS

These are a few of the men and women that went to work in Georgia 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.
