Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr.
Tonight, I recognized November 10, 2019 as Sergeant Michael Strank Day, on what would have been his 100th birthday. Sergeant Strank was one of six American heroes photographed raising the American Flag atop Mt. Suribachi during the battle of Iwo Jima. Six days later, Sergeant Strank was killed in action.
We can never forget his bravery and heroism, as well as all men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice while defending our freedom and democracy. 🇺🇸
