December 5, 2021

Former U.S. Ambassador and founder of Susan G. Komen and The Promise Fund of Florida, Nancy G. Brinker, released the following statement upon news of the passing of former U.S. Senator Bob Dole:

“The motto of the U.S. Army reads ‘This We’ll Defend’. It’s an ode not only to their resiliency in battle but also their dedication to our nation above all else. Bob Dole was a war hero who personified this creed his entire life. As a faithful supporter and long-time admirer of the former Senator and presidential aspirant, I am heartbroken to learn of his passing. As a fellow American, I could not possibly be more thankful for his service to our beloved nation. My thoughts and prayers are with Elizabeth and the entire Dole family. My hope is that in the days ahead we will mourn the passing of this American icon in the same way in which in lived his life, with honor, integrity and dedication to the land we love; forever grateful of the enduring strength and resolve of America’s Greatest Generation.”
