I'm proud that a fellow Aroostook County native has this solemn responsibility. It was an honor to meet Scott at the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. A 1977 Madawaska High School graduate, he previously served in the Army for 20 years.

When I talked to Charles today, I called him a hero. He replied: “I am not a hero; I was just doing my job. The real heroes are those who are in that cemetery.”

One of those brave soldiers was Charles Shay, a member of the Penobscot tribe and a graduate of Old Town High School. He was a medic who risked his own life by repeatedly going into the water to rescue wounded & drowning soldiers. For his heroism, he was awarded a Silver Star.

Today’s ceremony was especially meaningful to me because my father was a WWII combat veteran who earned 2 Purple Hearts & the Bronze Star as a result of injuries he sustained in the Battle of the Bulge. It was from him that I first learned to honor, respect, & thank our veterans.

On June 6, 1944, tens of thousands of Americans & allied troops carried out the greatest amphibious troop landing in history to liberate Europe from Nazi tyranny. It’s a privilege to be part of the official Senate Delegation in Normandy today commemorating the 75th anniversary.

Senator Thad Cochran was a gentleman, a scholar, & a wonderful friend. From his enlistment in the Navy to his decades as Mississippi’s Senator, he served his country & his state well. My condolences to his wife Kay & to his children & to the people of the state he so loved.
