Memorial Day 2015
‘Memorial Day is also a time to express our gratitude to the families of the fallen, to let them know they are not forgotten.’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement honoring the members of our Armed Forces on this Memorial Day, May 25:
“This Monday we’ll honor our nation’s greatest heroes: Every American who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of freedom, democracy, and the American way of life. We’ll proudly fly the flag that these brave heroes sought to protect.
“Memorial Day is also a time to express our gratitude to the families of the fallen, to let them know they are not forgotten. Kentucky has always played a vital role in the defense of our nation, and I want to especially remember the heroes of the Bluegrass State on this day. I’m honored to represent Kentuckians in the Armed Forces, including those stationed at Fort Knox, Fort Campbell, the Blue Grass Army Depot, and members of the Reserves and Kentucky National Guard.”
