This day is not about America’s veterans. It’s about those who never had the chance to become veterans because they sacrificed their lives during their service. We honor them this #MemorialDay
I am shocked and saddened by the actions of the protesters in Frankfort today. Never did I think I would see this type of behavior on our Capitol lawn. Today’s events should be condemned by every Kentuckian and American. Kentucky is better than this. I stand with our Governor.
