In a video released today, on Memorial Day, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) discusses the importance of honoring all those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect and defend America.

Ernst, the first female combat veteran to serve in the U.S. Senate and a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, successfully spearheaded a longtime effort to get bipartisan legislation signed into law to create a Global War on Terrorism Memorial on our National Mall in Washington, D.C.
