Monday, June 5, 2017, US Senator Luther Strange (R-Alabama) announced on Monday that he is co-sponsoring S. 926, the Global War on Terrorism Memorial Act.
The Legislation was introduced by Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa). It is supported by multiple veterans’ groups, including the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
Sen. Strange said, “The fight against terrorism in all forms and places is coming to define a generation of America’s men and women in uniform, their families, and the communities across our nation protected by their selfless service. While global threats continue to evolve, and as more Americans are tragically impacted by the effects of radical extremism, it is fitting that we dedicate a place of honor for those whose lives have been cut short along the way. I remain committed to working with my colleagues on the Armed Services Committee to support our troops in their ongoing mission to extinguish terrorism.”
