A Memorial Day message from Congressman Eric Cantor
From Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-7th Congressional District)....
This weekend and Monday most Americans will take some time off and spend it with their family and friends. Traditionally, we recognize this time of year as the beginning of summer. There are many fine traditions associated with this weekend, from the Indianapolis 500 to local parades to family backyard barbecues.
But I hope that you will join me in remembering what is really important this weekend. Over the course of this Memorial Day Weekend, please take a moment to remember and appreciate all those brave individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy the freedoms we do today.
Also, please remember the men and women of our armed services who continue to serve in harm’s way. They will not spend this weekend with their family and friends because they are risking their lives to protect and preserve our liberty. We owe them all a great debt of gratitude.
Please have a very safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend and I look forward to seeing you soon.
