Posted on May 26, 2017

NASHVILLE, May 26, 2017 – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today issued the following statement in commemoration of Memorial Day this coming Monday:
“There is no better day than Memorial Day to celebrate and honor what is right with America. It is a day set aside to celebrate the many American heroes who have given their lives so that we can be safe and we can be free. We are so grateful to every one of the men and women who have worn -- and who wear-- the uniform of the Armed Services, and for their families who make such sacrifices. We honor, in particular, the thousands of Tennesseans who serve on active duty and in the reserve and National Guard."
