Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today issued the following statement in observance of Memorial Day.

“As someone who grew up on military bases, my earliest years were spent in the company of individuals who stood ready to defend our nation, no matter the cost. Our nation has always been blessed beyond measure to have among us patriots who so love their country, and the principles it was founded upon, that they are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice so that freedom might live. We are forever in their debt.”
