Memphis, Tenn. – U.S. Representative David Kustoff (TN-08) today released the following video and remarks in honor of Memorial Day.

The full text of Kustoff’s remarks follows:

Hello, I’m David Kustoff, and I am proud to serve as your United States Congressman for the Eighth Congressional District of Tennessee.

On this Memorial Day, we pay tribute to the men and women who have given their lives in service to our country.

As I stand here today at the World War Two Memorial in our nation’s capital, I reminded of our country’s incredible history and all the heroes who died so our future can be stronger.

The men and women who serve in our military perform the highest form of public service, and we are forever indebted to them.

There is no greater or nobler sacrifice than to lay your life on the line for your family, your friends, your neighbors and your country.

To all of you missing loved ones who gave their lives for our freedom, we join you in honoring their remarkable service and sacrifice.

They, along with our active duty service members and veterans, are the reason why America is the greatest country in the world.

It is my honor to represent you in the United States House of Representatives, and I look forward to seeing you all back home in West Tennessee very soon.
