Here I'm pictured with former Navy Seal Senior Chief Petty Officer, Rob O'Neill and former Army Lieutenant Colonel and current Congressman, Steve Russell. O'Neill killed Osama bin Laden and Russell's unit was instrumental in the hunt and capture of Saddam Hussein. I was honored to stand next to two heroes responsible for capturing two of the most wanted men in American history.

Washington, D.C.
—Last week, the House passed H.R. 3036, the 9/11 Memorial Act. Rep. Curbelo (FL-26) was a co-sponsor of the bill.

“I am proud to have voted for the 9/11 Memorial Act, a bipartisan bill that honors those who lost their lives as a result of the devastating terrorist attacks that forever changed our country on September 11, 2001. This bill will designate the National September 11th Memorial located at the World Trade Center in New York as a national memorial. The innocent victims and fearless heroes who lost their lives in the line of duty deserve to be remembered, not for the lives they lost, but for the time they lived. This memorial will serve as a reminder to all that even in the bleakest of times, America will always persevere.”

H.R. 3036 passed the House by a vote of 387-12
