Tom Perez on Marine Corps Plane Crash

In response to the United States Marine Corps cargo plane crash in Mississippi yesterday, DNC Chair Tom Perezoffers his condolences to their families and their fellow Marines with the following statement:

“I want to offer my sincerest condolences to all of the families of the United States Marines who lost their lives last night. This is a heartbreaking tragedy for our country. At home and abroad, our nation’s servicemembers put themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedoms each and every day, and we are eternally grateful for their sacrifice. The ‘Marines’ Hymn’ reminds us that the streets of Heaven are guarded by United States Marines, and I know these fallen heroes will assume their new post with the same sense of duty and honor that guided their lives.”
