Statement on Memorial Day

Statement from Julia Bryan, Chair of Democrats Abroad, on Memorial Day

Democrats Abroad traditionally spends Memorial Day commemorating our fallen soldiers and visiting their graves to honor their sacrifice. This year we cannot visit military cemeteries to lay wreaths and honor the dead. But we can and we do vow to support those who remain - families, friends and comrades who still serve and live abroad - ensuring that they receive the support they deserve to participate in democracy through the ability to vote from abroad; that their families can travel back to the US through our fight for fair immigration laws; and that they, and all Americans abroad, are able to receive the same relief that families back home are receiving thanks to the CARES and HEROES Acts.

We honor the dead, and fight for the living. Never forget.
