Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement ahead of the Memorial Day weekend –honoring America’s fallen patriots:

“Memorial Day is a day we set aside to honor the men and women of our Armed Forces who made the ultimate sacrifice so that this great nation would survive in freedom. They chose to give of themselves to defend the American ideal of individual rights and self-governance for their loved ones and their country.”

“Let us take this day to remember our fallen heroes and to also be reminded of the principles they fought and died to defend. We are a nation conceived in liberty for the individual, that by our consent, we formed a government that would protect those inalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator.”

“We are blessed to live in a nation where our God-given rights are acknowledged, and we owe a great debt of gratitude to our veterans and our fallen who have so valiantly guarded our freedoms on battlefields across the globe.”

“May we remember fondly and proudly those who gave the last full measure of devotion for our freedom, and may God continue to bless America while comforting all those whose unbearable sacrifice was their loved one for the sake of our liberty.”

Congressman Gohmert is the Vice Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee and the Vice Chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, he was elected to three terms as State District Judge in Smith County, Texas and was appointed by then Texas Governor Rick Perry to complete a term as Chief Justice of the 12th Court of Appeals of Texas.
