Recognizing America’s “Ghost Army”

The men and women who served during World War II were a part of America’s greatest generation. This week, the House reaffirmed that deeply held belief by passing bipartisan legislation to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the “Ghost Army” in recognition of their heroic service.

The Ghost Army – a classified regiment composed of the U.S. Army’s 23rd Special Headquarters Troops and the 3133rd Signal Service Company – saved thousands of Allied lives during WWII. They were best known for conducting creative, innovative, and risky maneuvers to deceive the Nazis and draw forces away from Allied troops. 

Unfortunately, because their missions were kept secret for decades, they were never recognized for their extraordinary accomplishments. But that is finally about to change as this bill is on its way to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law! Honoring these troops is a bipartisan accomplishment that was long-overdue, and I’m proud we were able to come together to get it done.

This is a big win for freedom-loving Americans who shared my concern that we were getting dangerously close to living in a dystopian Orwell novel. From the beginning, I have fought President Biden’s […]



Price Controls Are Not The Answer

Americans are paying record high prices at the pump. In Washington State, the average price of gas soared to a shocking $5.18 a gallon in May. But what’s driving these prices to such devastating heights? Since their efforts to blame the price hike squarely on Putin’s invasion of Ukraine (even though prices were rising well […]
