FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON, DC – December 10, 2021.
Today, we lay to rest a man of integrity and honor. Former
Senator Robert Joseph Dole embodied the spirit and
tenacity of the Greatest Generation. Faced with possible
life-ending injuries on the battlefield in Italy during WWII,
Senator Dole fought to live and recover from his wounds.
His injury did not define him, nor did he let it hold him
Senator Dole did not sit idly by after his injury. Following a
three-year recovery, he went on to become a Member of
the Kansas House of Representatives, County Attorney,
U.S. Congressman, United States Senator, Chairman of
the Republican National Committee, Chair of the Senate
Finance Committee, Leader of the Senate Republican
Conference, Senate Minority Leader, Senate Majority
Leader, 1976 GOP Vice President Candidate, and 1996
Republican Presidential Nominee.
He is well known as a bipartisan political leader who
focused on taxes and foreign policy, but even more so as
a strong advocate for people with disabilities. Senator
Dole was instrumental in the passing of the 1990
Americans with Disabilities Act, which changed the lives of
countless individuals in our country.
His life and achievements continue to impact our great
nation. He lived to serve his fellow countryman and make
a better tomorrow for everyone.
We honor his life, legacy of service, significant
achievements as a soldier, and his roles as a Republican.
“You will never walk alone”
