U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor today, December 7, 2016, in observance of the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor:

“Today marks the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a date that FDR rightly predicted ‘will live in infamy.’

“It’s a time when we reflect on the meaning of this day — for our country and our military.
“A time when we remember all those who sacrificed on our behalf.

“And a time when we recognize the men and women in uniform currently serving to keep our country safer.

“One of my greatest honors through the years has been the opportunity I’ve had to meet with distinguished Kentucky veterans as they visit Washington through the honor flight program. I know many of my colleagues feel the same about their experiences with veterans of their states.

“Today I ask my Senate colleagues to join me in remembering all those who served and sacrificed so much, and in thanking our men and women in uniform who are stationed around the world this holiday season.”
