Senator Ron Johnson On Memorial Day

Senator Johnson made the following remarks honoring the observance of Memorial Day:

“The greatest gift we have in this country is our freedom — made possible by the willing sacrifice of so many brave Americans in our armed forces. Memorial Day gives us an opportunity to create space in our busy schedules to reflect on the price of that freedom that we often take for granted. As a U.S. senator, husband, father and new grandfather, I am more aware this year than ever of how precious and costly the protection of our freedom is, and I want to say thank you. Thank you to the finest among us who paid the ultimate price to protect our greatest blessing — a debt we will never be able to repay. This country is forever grateful, and this Memorial Day we join together in commemorating that sacrifice.”
