Mark Herring: Remembering and honoring this Memorial Day

mark herringToday is about remembering and honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. On this Memorial Day, I want to take a moment to give thanks for the bravery of the incredible men and women who have served in the military.

Honoring these sacrifices isn’t just about the past. It’s about doing everything we can to protect those who serve now and in the future. That’s why I’m committed to working to help ensure that those in uniform have the resources they need and that returning veterans have access to the jobs and medical care they deserve.

In many Virginia neighborhoods, veterans and military families are the heart of the community. They’re a reminder of the kind of selfless service that makes this nation great.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Memorial Day and may God bless those in our armed forces.

Mark Herring is the attorney general of Virginia.
