Washington, DC- Congressman Steve King released the following statement to encourage 4th District Iowans to recognize this upcoming Memorial Day by honoring the men and women who have died in service to our country:
“This Memorial Day weekend, let us remember what unites and makes us great,” said King. “Our nation was founded on standards that cannot be modified or altered by political or social winds of change, because American exceptionalism is our God-given foundation. Every day American soldiers put on their uniforms, represent and fight for our nation and yet they ask for nothing in return. I have traveled to Afghanistan and Iraq to be with our troops and I know that they understand their purpose.
Let us respect the rights and privileges we have because of our men and women in uniform who gave their lives in defense of God-given American liberty. This Memorial Day, may we take the time to recognize the vast blessings this country offers, and may we ‘stand beside her, and guide her.'”
