Eau Claire – Today, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind released the following statement in advance of the observance of Memorial Day:

“As Wisconsinites come together on Memorial Day, it is important that we take time to reflect on the sacrifice and service our brave men and women in the Armed Forces, and their families, make to protect our freedoms and safety.

The heroism and selflessness shown by our fallen servicemembers is the ultimate form of patriotism. Our respect and gratitude extends far beyond this holiday weekend – it is everlasting.

I hope everyone takes the day to join in their local Memorial Day celebrations, spend time with family and friends, and remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country.”

Rep. Ron Kind will be attending community-wide Memorial Day events in Eau Claire and Eleva.
