Senator Burr Statement on 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement:

“Today marks the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended hostilities in World War I. Nearly ten million troops were killed and millions more were wounded in a conflict of such magnitude it was called ‘the war to end all wars.’ Yet in many ways World War I was the beginning, not the end, of the struggle for freedom and human rights that has shaped the last century. As we remember the courage and the sacrifices of those who fought in World War I, we also take a moment to thank all our nation’s veterans who have helped protect American freedoms. Thank you to the brave men and women who have served our nation in uniform, and God bless the United States of America.”
