Joe Lieberman statement on Brian Bill’s death

U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman issued this statement Monday on the death of Navy SEAL Brian Bill, a Stamford native who was killed in combat over the weekend in Afghanistan:

“Brian Bill’s death is heartbreaking for his family and friends, but also for the larger Trinity Catholic High School and Stamford communities. He died in service of a cause larger than himself, the security and freedom of his fellow Americans and of the Afghan people. He died in the company of a band of heroes who wear the uniform of the United States Military. We can never thank Brian, his colleagues, and their families enough, but we can offer our condolences, thank them for inspiring us by their service, pledge to emulate their selflessness, courage, and patriotism in every way we can, and pray that God will bless them now.”
