“I couldn’t be more proud of the courage, commitment, and sacrifice of America’s troops and military families in the fight to make our nation and the world a safer place,” Sen. Claire McCaskill says. “I join all Missourians in honoring those who have given their lives in defense of our freedoms. After more than ten years of sacrifice, and with bin Laden now dead, it’s clear that we must have a definitive path for the Afghans to secure their own nation and for the heroic men and women of our armed forces to return home for good.”
