Statement From A.G. Schneiderman In Honor Of Memorial Day

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today released the following statement in observance of Memorial Day:

“Today, let us honor the generations of courageous Americans – mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters – who sacrificed their lives to defend our nation. Words cannot express the profound depth of thankfulness we owe to them and their families, but let us unite and share the burden of grief in the hope that we can offer a small measure of peace to the loved ones left behind. 

“Let us also remember that we can best honor our fallen heroes by standing up for the brave men and women in uniform who continue to serve our country every day, and by fulfilling our moral obligation to fight for the wounded warriors here at home. Let us recommit to our duty to protect those who have protected us, and to show them the respect they have shown to this great nation."
