Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | News | Date Posted: Friday, May 25, 2012




DOVER –  In his weekly message, Governor Markell thanks military families and focuses on the importance of remembering those who gave their lives so we could enjoy our freedom.

“This Memorial Day weekend gives us time to look forward to the new season ahead filled with family activities.  But it’s also important to pause —   to remember those families who still grieve the loss of a son, daughter, father, mother, brother or sister who gave their life  so we could enjoy our freedom,” said Governor Markell.  “ So many Delaware soldiers have died while during duties in Afghanistan or Iraq.  The liberty we enjoy today was won with their blood, and we cannot honor them enough.”

At noon every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form.  The message is available on:
