Burr Gives Memorial Day Address at USS North Carolina

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) spoke at the USS North Carolina’s Memorial Day Program. His remarks included the following:

“Memorial Day is a day of remembrance,” said Senator Burr. “It’s not the start of summer. It’s not the day the pools open. It’s a day to remember the sacrifices of so many.”

Burr continued: "It's the individuals that built this vessel [USS North Carolina], it's those who served on it, it’s those who really committed to the acts of World War II that are the reason we're here today the fact that we can come here and assemble and talk about America’s history."
