FROM CONGRESSMAN TOM REED:
Saddened to hear of the passing of a true American Patriot, Bob Dole. His tireless service and dedication to our country is an inspiration to us all. Today, we reflect on his extraordinary life and achievements, from World War II Hero to Senate Majority Leader and Presidential Candidate. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family at this difficult time.
STATEMENT FROM SENATOR GEORGE BORRELLO ON THE PASSING OF FORMER SENATOR BOB DOLE
“Our nation has lost an American hero and statesman with the passing of Senator Bob Dole. A member of the Greatest Generation who was grievously wounded on a battlefield in Italy during World War II, his service to our country would continue during more than three decades in Congress.
“I had the privilege of meeting Senator Dole in 1987 when I was in college, an experience that only reinforced my impression of him as a truly principled, gracious and extraordinary public servant. He was the very definition of a great American.
“Today, my thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Dole and his family and friends.”
