Give Credit When Credit is Due

The Republican Caucus and Governor Patrick very rarely agree on policy, but one view we do share is the importance of honoring our military men and women, particularly those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The Boston Globe today revealed that Governor Patrick, like former Governor Mitt Romney, has made it a point to attend every wake, funeral or memorial of every fallen service member since becoming Governor.

We applaud and commend Governor Patrick for paying respect to our fallen heroes and their families and hope this tradition will continue not only under Governor Patrick, but by his future successors as well.
