FDP Statement in Honor of Memorial Day

Posted

In honor of Memorial Day, Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith issued the following statement: 

"As we gather with our families and friends for relaxation and recreation this Memorial Day, we pause to honor the sacrifice made by our brave service men and women who have given their lives in defense of our country. There are no words to truly express the debt of gratitude we owe these Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend the values of our nation and the freedoms we all hold dear. But we can honor these heroes by renewing and redoubling our commitment to our active service members and veterans — ensuring that every member of our armed forces has the utmost preparation, protection, healthcare, and economic opportunity once they return home. Let us today, on this Memorial Day, re-affirm this promise to these Americans who have given so much of themselves for us. God bless you, God bless Florida, and God bless the United States of America."
