U.S. Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) released the following statement today in advance of Memorial Day:
"On this Memorial Day, we honor the more than one million American men and women who gave their lives for their country since our nation's founding. We honor the more than 23 million living veterans -- from the Greatest Generation to the latest generation. And we honor the families of those who have or are serving.
"While our debt to these heroes can never be re-paid, I am certain that my fellow Kansans would agree that these liberators and defenders of democracy deserve our utmost respect and gratitude. So, I give a heartfelt thank you to all the veterans across our great state and throughout our country."
