We attended the burial of Senator Ted Stevens at Arlington National Cemetery and a Memorial Concert at the Kennedy Center. Our hearts and prayers are with his family. He had an outstanding military burial with a fly-over.
Senator Stevens was a true American hero--a war veteran to a United States Senator. He always had the nation and the American people in his thoughts and deeds. He helped bring Alaska into statehood, introduced legislation giving women equal rights in sports, introduced legislation for the US Olympic Committee, and helped Alaska with federal funding for the military and local programs. Also, Senator Stevens was a great supporter of the arts and music.
Senator Stevens was a man who showed common sense while crafting legislation for our nation's security and budgets. Some of his best friends were Democrats and he reached across the isle many times for the benefit of our nation. We will miss Senator Stevens--he was one of a kind and a true American hero.
