Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., encourages all Americans to take the opportunity to honor the men and women who gave their lives in the fight for freedom and those who continue to serve and protect the country this Memorial Day, May 30.
“We owe all veterans a debt we will never be able to repay. Today is a day when we can formally show our appreciation but every day our veterans should have a special place in our hearts,” said Enzi. “Veterans provide an example of courage, love for their country and determination to make a difference that we can all learn from. My heart especially goes out to those who have lost their lives since 9/11 as they did everything they possibly could to put an end to terrorism.”
An Honor Flight of over 100 World War II veterans from Wyoming came to Washington, D.C. on May 17-18 to visit the memorial built in their honor. Enzi and Senator John Barrasso met the veterans at the national World War II memorial. They participated in a wreath-laying ceremony and spent the morning visiting with each of the veterans and thanking them for their service.
