Rep. Buck Introduces Memorial Day Resolution Recognizing American Heroes
May 28, 2021
WASHINGTON – Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) introduced a resolution today honoring the memory of the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Rep. Buck issued the following statement:
Countless American heroes have died fighting to protect and defend our nation, and it’s impossible to sufficiently describe the significance of their service and sacrifice.
But as a grateful nation, the best way to honor their memory is to cherish the freedoms and liberties that they fought to preserve.
Every Memorial Day, I’m reminded of the charge given by President Reagan at Arlington National Cemetery:
“As we honor their memory today, let us pledge that their lives, their sacrifices, their valor shall be justified and remembered for as long as God gives life to this nation.
And let us also pledge to do our utmost to carry out what must have been their wish: that no other generation of young men will ever have to share their experiences and repeat their sacrifice.”
