Things I like about Memorial Day

Memorial Day is more than fishing, hot dogs, time with the kids, and sleeping late. It is actually a holiday with a meaning.

The Civil War killed more people than any other American War. More than WWII, more than all other wars combined. Memorial Day was to honor the 620,000 soldiers that dies in the Civil War. 2% of the population died. That is a lot of pain.

Arlington National Cemetery — was Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s farm. It was to insult him that the Union dead were buried there. It has become the most honored grave site for the nation.

Enjoy Memorial Day! I hope you spend a moment thinking about the meaning behind the day. I also hope you enjoy your holiday by eating more, catching more fish, spending quality time with your kids, and sleeping late.

I, Frank Murch was born in Honolulu. Dad was an Army Captain. After his separation he drove my 2-year-old self and Mom to Colorado. After starting Kindergarten and terrorizing my parents, brother and sister for 20 years, I graduated both Kindergarten and the University of Colorado.

Along the way I gathered letters to drag behind my name MSEng, MBA.  30 years later I started Signs for San Diego. Signs for San Diego is a manufacturing company. Much more about building signs than other Sign Companies; it comes from my background. Technical Capability is a focus. We are a wholesale source for the industry. We want to make the best sign possible. It is in my DNA. Applying 30 years of manufacturing experience and 10 years of entrepreneurial experience make us the best sign company around. I also am of the HP management culture, Inclusion, respect and treating people as adults makes Signs for San Diego a happy place to work. We are looking for customers that match our culture, happy, better quality, and better than what is generally available
