Statement by Attorney General William P. Barr on Memorial Day

"Today we remember that our freedom was bought at a price," Attorney General William P. Barr said. "Over the course of our history, countless Americans have willingly laid down their lives so that the people of this great nation could continue to live in peace, prosperity, and liberty. We owe them a debt of gratitude that we can never fully repay. Today, I join with all Americans in pausing to remember them, honoring their sacrifice, and resolving to preserve the precious freedom and order that these heroes so selflessly won for each of us."
