Honor and Remember Flag Recognition Act
Proud to be an original co-sponsor of H.R. 546, the Honor and Remember Flag Recognition Act. This legislation seeks to make the Honor and Remember Flag an official symbol to recognize and honor members of the Armed Forces who die in the line of duty.
Since the Revolutionary War, more than one million members of the United States Armed Forces have paid the ultimate price by sacrificing their lives in the line of duty. The contributions of those fallen members of the Armed Forces are deserving of national recognition. Currently, there is no officially recognized symbol that acknowledges members of the Armed Forces who died in the line of duty.
This bill designates the flag to be flown at the The Capitol, The White House, World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, each National Cemetery, Department of Defense and Veteran's Affairs facilities and Post Offices on the following days: Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, National POW/MIA Recognition Day and Veteran's Day.
