Congressman Tim Scott (SC-01) released the following statement in advance of Memorial Day tomorrow. Scott will be speaking at the Summerville American Legion & VFW Post Memorial Day Observance at 10:15AM tomorrow.
"Coming from a military family myself, I fully understand and appreciate the sacrifices made by both our veterans and their families. Memorial Day provides an opportunity to reflect on those sacrifices made, and celebrate the lives of our veterans past and present.
Without the blood, sweat and tears of these brave men and women, America would be a very different place. Their dedication to serving our nation has provided the backbone for everything we have been able to accomplish.
While we can never fully repay our veterans for their service, what we can do is treat them with the honor and respect they deserve. I hope everyone today will shake a veteran's hand, and tell them thank you for everything they have done. They deserve nothing less."
