"Today’s ceremony was truly moving and I was honored to attend,” Senator Casey said. “I hope that today’s marking of this anniversary will call attention to the work our country needs to do on behalf of our veterans. As we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, we are reminded of how much we owe to those who have given ‘the last full measure of devotion.’”
