Rep. Curbelo Cosponsors H.R.1475
Washington, D.C.- Rep. Curbelo (FL-26) joined as a cosponsor to H.R. 1475, the Korean War Veterans Memorial Wall of Remembrance Act of 2015.
I am proud to cosponsor H.R. 1475 to recognize our heroes who lost their lives protecting our freedoms during the Korean War. The Wall of Remembrance will list the names of all the members of our U.S. Armed Forces killed in combat, along with also listing the total number of American Prisoners of War and Missing in Action. These brave men and women paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our country’s safety and continued prominence as a global leader. Though they are not be with us today, their sacrifices and memory will never be forgotten.
I thank Rep. Sam Johnson (TX-03), a 29-year Air Force Veteran who served in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars, for introducing this much needed bipartisan piece of legislation. I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure that H.R. 1475 passes Congress and is signed into law.
