STATEMENT BY THE VICE PRESIDENT
Tipper and I were stunned and saddened by the tragic plane crash today in Nashville. Two Navy pilots perished while training to protect America -- and on behalf of a grateful nation, we honor their service and their memory. For the three people from the heart of Tennessee who lost their lives, we are shaken by the grief of losing neighbors. Our hearts go out to their loved ones -- and on behalf of the Tennessee community and the national family, we offer our deepest sympathy.
