Statement By Governor Perry On Memorial Day
Governor Rick Perry started the day by placing flags on the graves of veterans at the Texas State Cemetery with Pastor Mac Richard, founder of Lake Hills Church.
"Today is a day to remember the heroes who never made it home, the noble individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice while standing up to the forces of tyranny and oppression that threatened our country. In places like Normandy, Seoul, Khe Sanh, Fallujah and Peleliu, they gave everything they had for the freedom and liberty of future generations. On this Memorial Day, we should all pause to salute the men and women in uniform who sacrificed so valiantly for the United States, and say a prayer for the continued safety and security of our troops everywhere."
