WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.) Wednesday attended the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris at the United States Capitol.

“The peaceful transfer of power is an essential component of the American experiment. Witnessing this uniquely American tradition once again reminded me of the immense responsibilities we have to protect this republic,” Young said. “I stand ready to work with the new administration to find common ground wherever possible, and to ensure every American has a fair shot at success.”

Brigadier General R. Dale Lyles, the Adjutant General of the Indiana National Guard, joined Young as his guest for the 59th Presidential Inauguration. 

“I would also like to thank the Indiana National Guard members who were mobilized to our nation’s capital to help ensure a safe Inauguration, as well as their Commanding General, Brigadier General Lyles who joined today’s ceremony as my guest,” Young added. “From deployments around the globe to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and now helping to ensure the peaceful transfer of power, the men and women of the National Guard continue to make Indiana proud.”
