WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) released the following statement in honor of Memorial Day:
“Memorial Day is an important opportunity to thank our brave men and women in uniform and pay tribute to those who sacrificed their lives defending our country. It is their sacrifice that has kept America strong and reminds us that we must remain vigilant to protect our freedom. Last weekend, I was proud to honor our troops and their families at the first-ever Welcome Home Our Heroes parade in Richmond. The community came together to show our appreciation for our veterans and make sure they receive the care and support they need, and today we come together as a nation in that same spirit."
