Statement of Lt. Governor Molly Gray recognizing Memorial Day Weekend
Montpelier, VT – This afternoon, Lt. Governor Molly Gray released the following statement in recognition of the Memorial Day holiday:
“Yesterday, I joined the Vermont National Guard and Vermont Gold Star families in remembering and honoring our fallen heroes. While we come together around Memorial Day to honor their service and sacrifice, Vermont’s gold star families live with their loss each day — it never fades, it is always with them.
As we come together this weekend for parades, ceremonies and family gatherings, I hope Vermonters will keep the sacrifice of our servicemembers front of mind and in their hearts.
We remember that because of the service and sacrifice of our Vermonters in uniform, we are able to live with freedom and unity in our Green Mountain State.”
