This Memorial Day I want to take time to remember those who have given their lives to keep our nation free. There is no greater sacrifice than this. Throughout the history of our nation, so many brave men and women have sacrificed their lives to preserve the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today.
Thank you to all of those who are currently serving, those who have served, and all of their families for putting our nation first. America is a beacon of hope for so many across the world and that is because of our brave men and women in uniform who have fought for freedom, human rights, and justice across the globe. America is a better, stronger nation because of all that they have given.
One of the privileges I have in serving as your Congressman is the opportunity to meet with veterans. Whether I am visiting the James A. Lovell Center in North Chicago or greeting veterans arriving in Washington from the Illinois Honor Flight, it is an honor to learn their story and hear about their heroic efforts to keep our nation safe from harm’s way. I cannot thank them enough for their service to our country.
This Memorial Day, I hope that everyone will take the time to remember the fallen and thank those who are working hard across the world to protect our nation.
Congressman Robert Dold
