Honor Their Sacrifices

May 29, 2019

To the Editor:

On Monday, I joined Americans all across the country who paused to reflect on the incredible sacrifices of our service members. I’m especially mindful of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice: giving what Lincoln called “the last full measure of devotion” to protect our freedoms.

I know that I can hug my sons a little tighter before we tuck them in tonight only because there are Gold Star parents out there who have already laid their children to rest. We owe it to our fallen heroes and their families to ensure those sacrifices were not made in vain.

I’m choosing to honor their memory by recommitting to better serving the service members and military families who are still defending our nation today. That means fighting for a strong and efficient VA, and ensuring that veterans have access to opportunities in the civilian workforce. It also means making sure our military families get the support they need.

I hope everyone took time to remember and honor their sacrifices this Memorial Day. Then, every day thereafter, I hope you’ll join me in honoring these fallen patriots by living out the values they gave their lives to defend.

Andy Kim, congressman

3rd District
