State Funeral for War Veterans
"To convince Congress to pass legislation to grant a State Funeral for the last Medal of Honor recipients from the Korean and Vietnam Wars, as a final to salute to all the men and women who served."
Our previous success:
On July 14, 2022 a National Funeral was held in the Rotunda of the Capitol in Washington for the last MOH recipient from World War II, Hershel "Woody" Williams. It was the first time in the 246 year history of America that an enlisted man was allowed to lie in honor / lie in state. The Speaker of the House and the Senator Minority leaders spoke. That afternoon over 1,000 gathered at the National World War II Memorial for a second service.
