Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., encourages all Americans to take a moment to honor the service men and women who gave their lives in the fight for freedom and also for those who continue to serve and protect our nation this Memorial Day, May 31.

“Memorial Day is more than just a three-day weekend. It is a time of remembrance across this entire country where many activities will take place to honor and appreciate our veterans. This day is important for us all to reflect on the times of war our country has faced and show our respect to those who have selflessly defended us,” Enzi said.
 
“My wife Diana and I extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to our veterans. Today and every day people should thank God for our veterans and thank a veteran for their freedom. Our soldiers continually make sacrifices so that we can have the freedoms we have in our country.”
 
The Enzis plan to participate in Memorial Day events in Cheyenne this year. They are scheduled to attend the 54th Memorial Day Wreath-laying Ceremony at the Beth El Cemetery hosted by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1881 and the American Legion Post 6.
 
An honor flight of 110 World War II veterans from across Wyoming came to Washington, D.C. on May 18-19 to visit the memorials built in their honor. Enzi, Diana, Senator John Barrasso and Representative Cynthia Lummis all met up with 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.
