McCollum Statement in Observance of Memorial Day
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), released the following statement today ahead of Monday’s observance of Memorial Day:
“On the last Monday in May, we reflect on the sacrifices of the fallen heroes who lost their lives defending our nation at home and abroad. Maintaining our freedom, peace and stability, and democratic values rests on the backs of their sacrifices, and we offer our deepest gratitude for their selfless devotion. As we remember the U.S. service members who have lost their lives, we also offer our thanks and appreciation to the families and loved ones they left behind.
“As we collectively grieve a massive loss of life in recent months, let us remember the ties that bind us, which so many have fought and died for throughout our nation’s history. And let us all do what we can as Americans off the battlefield to preserve the principles they fought so hard to protect.”
