Today, Joe Donnelly, candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement marking Memorial Day.
"We owe a debt of gratitude to all those who serve our nation, especially those who lost their lives fighting to protect our freedoms. On this Memorial Day weekend, we remember all of the members of the Armed Forces from Indiana who died in the line of duty. We remember their wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, children, and friends who miss them every day. Let us never forget what they fought for: our country, the country that stands for greater freedom and justice in an often challenging world.
"Our nation is strong because of the sacrifices of our fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen; veterans of all ages; and their families. I hope we can mark Memorial Day--and every day--by honoring those who we have lost by taking care of those who have served."
Donnelly's campaign also released a web video today, highlighting Joe's efforts on behalf of veterans in northern Indiana and across the nation, including opening several new health clinics, expanding women's and mental health care, and programs to help veterans find jobs.
