Washington, D.C. - In advance of Memorial Day, U.S. Senator Susan Collins issued the following statement:
“Throughout America, we gather on this solemn day of gratitude. In small towns and big cities, we honor those who gave their all for all of us. We are reminded that freedom is a gift purchased at the greatest possible price.
