WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Pete Ricketts (R-NE) released the following video statement to commemorate Memorial Day.
“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but by the men it honors, the men it remembers. Those words were spoken by John F. Kennedy over half a century ago, and they are still true today. On Memorial Day, we honor the brave women and men who have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our nation.
“Over the course of our nation’s history, countless Americans and Nebraskans have answered the call of duty to serve in our armed forces. Their selflessness, dedication, and commitment are unmatched. I am grateful for their service and that of their families and loved ones.
“On this Memorial Day, we honor the service and sacrifice of those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. We also give special thanks to the loved ones who served alongside them and whose grief today is a debt we can never repay.
“God bless America and God bless the great state of Nebraska.”
