This Memorial Day, while we won’t have the same services and ceremonies we typically take part in, it doesn’t make this tradition any less important. This weekend, let’s continue to commemorate the servicemembers and families who have sacrificed in defense of our freedom.

Wearing my military rucksack, I spoke on the Senate floor to honor America’s fallen soldiers and their families, including a number of Iowa’s heroes.

May God bless all those who have worn our nation’s uniform.
