Congresswoman Hartzler's Memorial Day statement

May 24, 2013

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) has released the following Memorial Day statement:

“Memorial Day is more than the traditional start of the summer vacation season; it is a day to honor America’s fallen heroes. And, it is only fitting that Americans who enjoy time with family and friends take the time to honor the brave men and women in uniform who have fought and died to preserve the freedoms we all enjoy. The sacrifices made by these selfless individuals who gave the last full measure of devotion to keep our country free must never be forgotten. We thank them and their families for their sacrifices and ask God to watch over those who are protecting us.”

Congresswoman Hartzler represents Missouri’s Fourth Congressional District - home to Fort Leonard Wood and Whiteman Air Force Base. She serves proudly on the House Armed Services Committee.
