Madison, WI — U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) today released the following statement in honor of Memorial Day, Monday, May 26:

“Every year on Memorial Day, we pause to remember the brave men and women who have given their lives in defense of our country. These ordinary citizens – our friends, neighbors, and sons and daughters – took on the extraordinary responsibility of defending our nation and our freedoms. We must match that responsibility by ensuring our servicemen and women, and their families, have the support they deserve back at home.  Our heroes answered the call to serve with unrivaled patriotism and bravery; and we owe them the same loyalty and commitment.  Today we honor the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country and say thank you.”
