Dingell Statement Honoring Memorial Day
Dearborn, MI, May 28, 2016
U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) released the following statement in honor of Memorial Day, which will be observed on Monday, May 30.
“On Memorial Day, we pause to honor and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to this great nation. For me, Memorial Day is about coming together as a community – at memorial services and parades, with young people marching side-by-side with veterans of every era – to remember how great it is to be an American and to thank those who have given everything to protect our way of life. Since our nation’s founding, millions of brave individuals have stepped forward to defend our freedom, and they deserve our endless thanks and gratitude. On Memorial Day, we honor those who gave their ‘last full measure of devotion’ so we can be safe, secure and free. As we pay tribute to these fallen heroes, let us honor their memory by ensuring that their families and fellow veterans have the support they need and the care they deserve. Today and every day, we must keep our promise to serve our veterans and their families as well as they served us.”
