Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre Reflects On the Meaning of Memorial Day

“Our soldiers have made unimaginable sacrifices throughout our nation’s history. This Memorial Day, I extend my sincerest gratitude to the families of those who have fallen while defending our freedoms. Their service and dedication to our country must never be forgotten. Today, we honor their memory by recognizing their bravery and cherishing our freedom.

“We must never lose sight of the sacrifices so many made to ensure our safety and our liberty. These men and women are true heroes. We are so fortunate to live in this great country, and we should take every opportunity to show our appreciation. I will continue doing everything in my power to ensure the brave men and women in our community who serve our nation − and their families − continue to get the support they deserve.”
