WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today released the following statement in honor and observance of Memorial Day:
“Every May, we gather to pay tribute to our nation’s fallen heroes, the ardent patriots who gave their last full measure for our liberty,” Sen. Cruz said. “It is humbling when we pause and reflect on the self-sacrifice of every man and woman who has been laid to rest under the stars and stripes of our nation’s flag. We gather to remember lost sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, and all of our departed loved ones. We also honor the unnamed headstones that scatter military cemeteries across the country – for although those courageous servicemen and women are gone, they too must never be forgotten. May we never forget the lives of each fallen warrior; may we say their names today and every day, for it is their blood that has kept us free. It is their sacrifice that calls each of us to cherish the gift of liberty, and we must never take it for granted. God bless our nation’s protectors, and God bless the United States of America.”
