A grateful nation

Bob Menendez · May 28, 2018

My parents came to New Jersey in search of a freedom they couldn’t find at home — a freedom so many sacrificed for. They raised me to never take that freedom for granted, and I’ve carried that with me ever since.

This Memorial Day, I’m thinking about the promise of America as we honor the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation while serving in uniform. Our country owes each and every one of them a great debt.

As we spend time with family today, I hope you’ll join me in honoring their sacrifice. A grateful nation remembers.
