Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum delivered a solemn statement regarding the death of seven Marines in an Arizona helicopter crash on February 22:

“The thoughts and prayers of the entire Santorum family go out to the families of the Marines who died last evening.  Every day, thousands of our brave countrymen and women put on the uniform to defend our nation, putting their very lives on the line for the preservation of our freedom.  Karen and I pray for these men and women every day, and it’s with a heavy heart that we express our gratitude to the Marines who lost their lives and for their families.  They are to be praised for their service, dedication, and for giving the last full measure of devotion on behalf of our nation.”
