[Introduced January 23, 2020]

 

Requesting the President of the United States to designate a single state funeral to be held upon the death of the last living Medal of Honor recipient from World War II.

Whereas, Only 473 Americans were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest decoration of valor during World War II, and today only two of those Americans remain alive; and

Whereas, The time is approaching for a final salute to the Medal of Honor recipients from World War II; and

Whereas, A single state funeral to be held upon the death of the last living Medal of Honor recipient from World War II would be the perfect vehicle to do so, and it would also provide national recognition to honor all 16 million soldiers, sailors and airmen who served in our armed forces from 1941 to 1945; and

Whereas, General Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Allied Commander of the Pacific, and General Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander of Europe, were each honored by the nation with state funerals; and

Whereas, The selfless, brave men and women who served under them deserve the honor of special recognition at a state funeral to be held upon the death of the last living Medal of Honor recipient from World War II; therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Delegates:

That the West Virginia House of Delegates hereby requests the President of the United States to designate a single state funeral to be held upon the death of the last living Medal of Honor recipient from World War II; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a copy of this resolution to the President of the United States.
