The CBOE is pleased to invite all traders and staff to join us on the trading floor tomorrow morning for a special bell ringing ceremony at the beginning of trading. As we pay tribute to all of the men and women serving in our armed forces around the globe this Memorial Day weekend, we are especially honored to host Chicago native and decorated soldier, Colonel Sylvia T. Moran of the United States Army, to ring the opening bell.
Colonel Moran, the last woman on active duty from the first class of women to enter West Point in 1976, is set to retire on June 1. Her career has spanned from a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division to serving as a special adviser to then-Vice President Cheney. Among Colonel Moran’s many military awards and decorations, she has received the Distinguished Service Medal, the highest non-combat award in the Army; a Bronze Star for her service in Iraq; the Legion of Merit and the U.S. Department of State Superior Honor Award.
Thank you Colonel Moran and all of the men and women serving in our armed forces
