Fighting for Florida

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement honoring National POW/MIA Recognition Day:

“Today we dedicate ourselves to honoring the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces who were, and currently are, prisoners of war and missing in action. I pray for the hasty return of those who are still missing and I pray that their families find comfort in the love and support of the American people, who are eternally grateful for the service that our military men, women and their families offer to this great nation. We are all humbled by both the selfless service and sacrifices of our military families.

“We also remember those prisoners of war and missing in action soldiers which we have lost and pray that their families can find solace in knowing their loved ones fought with dignity and honor for our freedom. And to those men and women who were once in harm’s way but have since been returned safely home, I give my deepest thanks for your committed service and many sacrifices, as well as for the profound example you have set for all Americans.”
