Today, U.S. Senator Ben Sasse thanked members of the Nebraska National Guard.

“We owe much to our National Guard that helped carry out the safe and peaceful transition of power this month. They’ve worked long shifts, day and night, in the cold, sleeping in the halls of the Capitol to help protect our democracy. They’re obviously tough enough to handle the hardships — and the pausing of their lives back home — but we want each of them to know that Nebraskans are deeply grateful for the incredible work they’ve done, and we’re indebted to them for the reliable service they provide our nation. Melissa and I want to thank their families for their shared sacrifice as well.”
