May 27, 2016
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Monday May 30 is Memorial Day, an annual holiday honoring those who died while serving in our nation’s armed forces.

Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) releases the following statement:

“Memorial Day is marked in bold on the calendar and in the consciousness of the American people, a sacred day that stands apart. Memorial Day is a call to the nation to stop for a moment our daily lives and remember the sacrifices of those who have made our great nation possible. Across this holiday weekend we should reflect upon the lives that were stopped short and the husbands and wives, fathers and sons, daughters and mothers, that were never reunited because so many paid the ultimate price. We owe it to them to continue to be guided by the principles they fought for, to ensure that America’s men and women in uniform are fully supported and to keep our promise to America’s veterans that they will be able to thrive when their service is done.”
