Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following video statement marking Memorial Day. Rubio’s statement is available on YouTube in both English and Spanish.

ENGLISH TRANSCRIPT

Senator Marco Rubio: “Hi, this is U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. It’s a privilege and honor serving the people of Florida here in the United States Senate. You know, each Memorial Day, we stop and remember those who have given their lives in the service of our country. Men and women who are all over the world, defending freedoms – not just our freedoms, but the freedoms of others – have paid the ultimate price and given the ultimate sacrifice. As the brother of a veteran, as a family impacted by all the things that are happening in our hemisphere and around the world, I am deeply grateful to the men and women who have served us in the past in uniform and continue to serve us now. May God bless their souls. May God bless their family. May God bless our freedoms. And May God always bless the United States of America.”

SPANISH TRANSCRIPT

Senador Marco Rubio: “Les habla el senador Marco Rubio. Es un privilegio y un honor representarlos aquí en el Senado de los Estados Unidos. Cada año, en el día de ‘Memorial Day’, nosotros paramos para recordar a nuestros seres queridos, a nuestros americanos que, en uniforme, han dedicado y han dado su vida por las libertades y oportunidades que tenemos aquí en este país. Como hijo de inmigrantes, como miembro de una comunidad de exiliados, entiendo la importancia de la libertad y de estos sacrificios. Como el hermano de un veterano, entiendo los sacrificios que han hecho muchísimas familias, y el sacrificio que han hecho esas familias que han perdido un ser querido en el servicio de este país. Siempre estaremos agradecidos.  Que Dios bendiga a esas personas, a sus familias, a esos veteranos que dieron todo por nosotros. Que Dios los bendiga todos ustedes, y que Dios siempre bendiga a los Estados Unidos de América”.
