WASHINGTON, D.C - Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-Santa Clarita), Ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement honoring the brave men and women of our nation's Armed Forces for Memorial Day:

"Since 1775, and across the world today, our Armed Forces and veterans symbolize all that is best in us as Americans. This Memorial Day, we take time to honor all of the men and women of our nation's Armed Forces who have given their lives protecting our great country. I ask all Americans to join me in thanking the brave soldiers protecting our nation today and to pay tribute to all those who have given their lives for our country in the past.

"In the most difficult conditions and in the most challenging terrain, our Armed Forces have faced impossible odds without counting the cost to themselves. Our nation is free because of brave Americans like these, who volunteer to confront our adversaries abroad so we do not have to face them here at home. This Memorial Day we acknowledge our responsibility as Americans to preserve the memory of the fallen. May God bless all Americans on this great day of remembrance."
