Tuberville Bipartisan Resolution Honoring the Greatest Generation Passes the Senate

WASHINGTON – When speaking on the Senate Floor, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) called for unanimous consent to immediately pass his resolution to recognize and honor the men and women who fought for our American values during World War II: the Greatest Generation.

On the Senate Floor, Sen. Tuberville said, “I want to call up my bipartisan senate resolution honoring the Greatest Generation. I ask unanimous consent that the Committee on the Judiciary be discharged from further consideration and the Senate now proceed to senate resolution 238.”

The resolution passed without objection and was cosponsored by U.S. Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Rick Scott (R-FL), Mike Braun (R-IN), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), John Hoeven (R-ND), and Roger Wicker (R-MS).

“The men and women of the Greatest Generation answered the call to serve; whether at home or abroad, they defended the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today,” said Sen. Tuberville when speaking about his resolution. “Across Alabama and the nation, Americans came together to support the war effort in whatever way they could, leading to one of the greatest victories in the history of this nation. From factory workers to those on the frontlines, my resolution seeks to honor the patriotic spirit of the Greatest Generation.  I thank my colleagues who joined with me to ensure we never forget the sacrifices of these great Americans.”
