Congresswoman Johnson Statement on Memorial Day
DALLAS, TX – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, Chairwoman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee today issued the following statement in observance of Memorial Day:
“Today, our country gathers to honor this nation’s servicemen and servicewomen and those who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our democracy. There is a long and great legacy of brave men and women who have proudly represented our nation and given their last full measure of devotion in service to it.
“As we offer our gratitude and pay our respect, let us also express our appreciation to the families of our deceased military veterans. Their sacrifice represents a commitment to something greater than themselves, in line with the true spirit of America. Just as they have not forgotten their loved ones lost in battle, we will, likewise, keep their sacrifice alive in our memory.
“On this national day of memorial, I express my deepest gratitude to those we remember everyday and honor especially today.”
