Memorial Day Statement Of Senator Patrick Leahy

Memorial Day is when Americans set aside time to remember those who died in service to our country.   It is important to keep them in thoughts and prayers not only on Memorial Day, but every day.   Vermonters have always answered their nation’s call to duty.   Our state suffered disproportionate losses in Iraq and Afghanistan.   Throughout our state, as families plant flowers on the graves of their loved ones, and veterans place the American flag at the graves of all who served, let us all  think of those who fought and died for the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of the world’s greatest democracy.
