“On this Memorial Day, we remember the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms,” Donald Trump wrote in a statement on Monday. “The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history.”
Praising the fallen service members for making “the supreme sacrifice,” the former president added, “It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny.”
“We owe all that we are, and everything we ever hope to be, to these unrivaled heroes. Their memory and their legacy is immortal. Our loyalty to them and to their families is eternal and everlasting.
America’s warriors are the single greatest force for justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth. God bless our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen, and Marines. We honor them today, forever, and always.”
Melania Trump also tweeted on Memorial Day, “Today we honor courageous fallen heroes who fought for our freedom!”
