Governor’s Weekly Message: Remembering Our Fallen Soldiers

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, May 23, 2014



NEW CASTLE  – In his weekly message, filmed at the new Delaware National Guard headquarters in New Castle, Governor Markell reflects on the men and women of our armed forces who have sacrificed their lives while serving our country.

“Memorial Day reminds us of the sacrifices they make – sometimes the ultimate sacrifice – in service to others,” said Governor Markell. “It is thanks to their triumphs and their tragedies that we enjoy the freedoms we have. We have an obligation to keep alive the memories of those we have lost and remember the gratitude we owe to the service members who follow in their footsteps – whose incredible passion for service keeps Delaware and our country moving forward.”

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