Washington, DC (May 27, 2013) – Today, U.S. Congressman Steve Pearce released the following statement recognizing Memorial Day:

“Today, we remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.  The countless flags decorating headstones across the country are a powerful reminder of the price of freedom.  I am deeply grateful for the sacrifice of those who died for liberty, and all the families who have endured the loss of loved ones so that we may live free.

“I encourage my fellow New Mexicans today to take a moment to give thanks for our freedom and those who have died to preserve it, and find a way to express their gratitude to a veteran, service member, or a family member who has sacrificed alongside their loved ones in the service.  From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of those who have given of themselves to protect our great nation.”
