This Memorial Day, we will all remember those who fought for our liberty and sacrificed their lives for America. We enjoy freedom today because of the brave men and women who dedicated their lives to military service. I am eternally grateful to the Americans who have died serving our country. As I gather with my loved ones for the holiday, we will be remembering my uncle, who fought in World War II and died during the Battle of Normandy.
Also, I thank those of you who are currently serving in the military and protecting our great nation.
