“On Memorial Day, we remember all our men and women in uniform who have selflessly defended our country and our freedoms. These brave Americans, whose service and sacrifice are beyond measure, are the finest examples of our country’s values.

“Today we show our gratitude to America’s sons and daughters – those who we welcome home and those who never returned but guaranteed that our nation endured. This Memorial Day we dedicate ourselves once more to meeting the needs of every veteran. We must work unceasingly to ensure that those who served our country get the health care, good-paying jobs, and benefits they deserve. With the same fervor that these patriots have served us, we must now serve them.”
