Information from news release . . .

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, the daughter of a World War II veteran and a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement in honor of the Memorial Day holiday:
“I’m blessed to be spending this holiday weekend close to my family, and I hope many of you are able to do the same. But regardless of who we’re with or where we are during this holiday, we’ll all be exercising freedoms that generations of Americans died to provide us.

Many service members have made that ultimate sacrifice during the past year and it’s imperative that we all take time to recognize and honor them, alongside all of our fallen heroes. I wish all Missourians a safe and blessed Memorial Day weekend.”
