By Elizabeth Warren

I was only three years old when my brother Don joined the military, and my two other brothers would follow within a few years.

I’m proud of my brothers — and I honor the courage, dedication, and sacrifice of all our service members and their families on Memorial Day and every day.

Watch my special Memorial Day message:

I think when you grow up in a family with someone in the service, and you’re lucky enough to see everyone come home safely, Memorial Day has special meaning.

You understand what others have lost — and you honor even more the sacrifice and the service of those who fight for the country and all those who love them.

I hope you and your family have a safe and happy Memorial Day.
