Statement by Michael Reagan on Statue of Pres. Ronald Reagan at U.S. Capitol
ANCHORAGE, AK — “I am very touched and proud that my father, Pres. Ronald Reagan, is being honored in such a fitting way at the U.S. Capitol. I wish I could have been in Washington, D.C. for the wonderful event today in Statuary Hall, but I had a previous commitment and could not attend.
“On behalf of myself and my children — Pres. Reagan’s grandchildren — I offer my deepest gratitude to those who have arranged for his statue to be unveiled only a few short days from the fifth anniversary of his passing (June 5th).
“I look forward to visiting this special place soon and often with my family.”
