U.S. Representative Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today issued the following statement to remember those who fought and died for our freedom:
"Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends. These ancient words from Scripture ring no less true today as we remember our American heroes who have laid down their lives for us. We must always remember that our freedom is not free. It was paid for by the blood of American heroes.
"The actions of these patriots mean far more than any words I could possibly say. Because of their sacrifices, America stands as the world's beacon of freedom and hope.
"May God bless our American servicemen and women. And may God bless the families of these heroes who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of our nation."
