National Federation of Republican Women
Pays Tribute to Our Fallen Military Heroes

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Sue Lynch, president of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), issued the following statement in recognition of Memorial Day on Monday, May 30:

“This Memorial Day, the National Federation of Republican Women pays tribute to our deceased men and women who bravely and proudly served our nation in uniform. We wish to express to their families and loved ones that we are eternally grateful for their service and sacrifice, and that we will continue to honor their memory through a series of programs and initiatives. Supporting our troops and their families is one of our primary missions as an organization, and we will continue to recognize our brave men and women who so selflessly put their lives on the line that we may continue to live in freedom.”

In March, Lynch and other NFRW leaders participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. Watch the video of the ceremony.

Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
