A Salute.

To the men, women, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers and friends who have served our country, I salute you.

To my brother, who served in the U.S. Army National Guard; my father, who served in the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army; my grandfathers who also served this country; I salute you.

On this Memorial Day, place politics aside and please take a moment today to thank your service members and remember those who lost their lives serving our country.
