The IAM Veterans Monument was recently dedicated to IAM members who have served their countries with a ceremony attended by members, staff, veterans, local officials, and community members.
In October 2022, delegates of the 40th IAM Grand Lodge Convention expressed a desire to see their union commemorate and thank the many military veteran members of the IAM, past and present.
In response, now-retired IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr. committed to recognizing and memorializing U.S. and Canadian IAM military veterans in some tangible and enduring way, and planning started for what is now the IAM Veterans Monument at the William W. Winpisinger Center Education and Technology Center campus in Hollywood, Md. The Veterans Monument is within a short walking distance of the IAM Workers Memorial, both of which are open for members to visit.
