“As we approach Memorial Day, I hope we’ll all take time to reflect on our fallen heroes. These are the brave men and women in uniform who, throughout history, have courageously served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf. We remember these heroes, just as we remember their families.
“It’s one of my greatest honors to represent Kentuckians who serve in the Armed Forces, including those at Fort Campbell, Fort Knox, the Blue Grass Army Depot, and members of the Reserves and National Guard. Kentucky has played a critical role in the defense of our nation. I want to especially remember those from the Bluegrass State who’ve laid down their lives to protect our rights and freedoms.
“We know we could never repay the debt we owe to these fallen heroes. But this Memorial Day, and every day, let us honor these brave men and women.”
