“Today we remember the women and men who have given their lives in
service to a grateful nation. These brave Americans made the ultimate sacrifice
in order to protect the country we share and the ideals that have always shaped
our democracy. May their lives of duty and honor in service of something
greater than themselves inspire us all to never stop working to build a better
country in a more peaceful world. I join all Americans in sending love and
support to the families and friends of those who have given our country
everything they had to give.”
