To commemorate Memorial Day, which is Monday, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:
“This Memorial Day, we are reminded once again of the great commitment and sacrifice of all those who’ve given their lives in service to our country. Since our nation was founded, brave Americans have answered the call to serve, doing so with honor and pride. We owe an immeasurable debt of gratitude to those who have devoted their lives and made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our way of life and ensure we live in a free and prosperous America.
“On Memorial Day, while we honor those who have died in service, we are also reminded of the families who mourn for loved ones lost while serving in our Armed Forces. We must remain committed to these husbands and wives and sons and daughters. While our gratitude will never replace the people we have lost, we must make sure that we as a nation show them the respect and give them the support they deserve.”
