Peters Commemorates Memorial Day

WASHINGTON, DC - Below is a statement from U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a former Lt. Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve, in observance of Memorial Day:

“America’s brave men and women in uniform and their families make enormous sacrifices in defense of our nation, and today we remember those who paid the ultimate price by giving their lives to defend our country. The freedoms we enjoy today would not be possible without the generations of American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who have served our nation with bravery and honor – from the earliest days of the American Revolution to our current fight against global terrorism. On this Memorial Day, let us reflect on the selfless service of our servicemembers, veterans and their families, and remember that we owe them our deepest gratitude for all they have given to our nation.
