Remembering on Memorial Day

I would like to take a moment to commemorate the sacrifices of our military men and women who have laid down their lives in the service of our country.

Since the founding of this nation, Connecticut residents have answered the call of duty in defense of the United States.

On this Memorial Day, let us reflect on those individuals who so bravely risked their lives in the face of grave danger.

There is a "Wall of Honor" at the State Capitol. This wall is a tribute to the Connecticut men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces who lost their lives in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan after the September 11 attacks.

There are three faces on this wall from our community:

I would ask that you keep the fallen in your minds and their families in your hearts as we honor their immense sacrifices.
