U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), released the following statement to commemorate Memorial Day:

“Every year, we set Memorial Day aside to honor the service members who made the ultimate sacrifice, and remember the timeless values for which they fought and died. Whether you’re attending a Memorial Day service, participating in a Main Street parade, or pausing for a moment to reflect, I hope you will pay tribute to those who died defending our freedom. Let us never forget the meaning of this day or the patriotism of our fallen heroes.”
