Cotton Statement on Memorial Day

May 24, 2020

Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) tonight released the following statement on the Memorial Day holiday tomorrow:

"Memorial Day reminds us of the patriots who've died in defense of our country. The orderly rows of white headstones at resting places like Arlington National Cemetery impress upon us the magnitude of their sacrifice-yet each headstone pays tribute to an individual who left his own heroic saga and loving family here on Earth. Memorial Day is a moment to reflect on these brave men and women, and, through the act of reflection, commit ourselves to emulating their courage and patriotism."
