Growing up in a military family, Memorial Day has always had special significance for me and for my family. I remember especially how proud my Dad was to serve his country and how proud we were of him.
Today is Armed Forces Day. As the son of a career military man, I appreciate the service of every man and woman who has answered our country's call to duty.
Last week, I joined with my colleagues in the Senate and we passed legislation – in an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 98 to 1 - that would give Congress the ability to review an emerging nuclear deal that the Obama Administration is forging with Iran.
Today is “Peace Officers Memorial Day” - the day we honor our local, state and federal peace officers who have died in the line of duty.
