BY U.S. SENATOR TOM COTTON –
Washington, D.C.— Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement in observance of Memorial Day:
“On Memorial Day, we remember those brave Americans who gave what Lincoln called ‘the last, full measure of devotion’ defending our country. John 15:13 says, ‘Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.’ The Americans who died in our uniform laid down their lives for us, their fellow countrymen, so that we might live in freedom.
“We will never forget the sacrifices of our fallen comrades, nor the cause for which they fought. And while we can neither repay their sacrifices, nor fill the emptiness of their loved ones, we can honor their memory in everything we do and everything we say. So today—and everyday—let us all join in this memory of our valiant countrymen and celebration of our great country.”
