Today, Karina Lipsman, Congressional nominee for VA-08, releases the following statement in recognition of Memorial Day:
"While millions of Americans celebrate a three-day weekend, it is imperative that each and every one of us take the time to remember the true meaning behind Memorial Day. Today, we should all honor the sacrifices made by over 500,000 brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country. Without the brave heroism of each soldier, the freedoms, and liberties we enjoy would not be possible. I encourage everyone in Virginia's 8th Congressional District, as well as all Americans nationwide, to remember our fallen heroes today and every day."
On Sunday, Lipsman visited Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia where she paid her respects in person to many of our nation's greatest heroes.
