Bill Binnie, Republican candidate for US Senate in New Hampshire, released the following statement for the Memorial Day weekend:
I hope everyone has a happy and safe Memorial Day holiday.
But, of course, Memorial Day is more than just a holiday.
It’s a day when each of us must remember the sacrifices veterans made for their country, especially those men and women who paid the ultimate price.
We must remember too that peace can only be preserved if America is strong.
As Ronald Reagan once said on a Memorial Day more than 20 years ago, “We must be strong enough to create peace where it does not exist and strong enough to protect it where it does. That's the lesson of this century and, I think, of this day.”
