Tuberville Introduces Resolution Designating May as “Fallen Heroes Memorial Month”

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) introduced a resolution designating May as “Fallen Heroes Memorial Month.” As the son of a veteran and a member of both Senate Armed Services and Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committees, Senator Tuberville is committed to supporting and honoring the millions of U.S. service members who have given their lives to protect our nation’s freedoms.

“Memorial Day is not about grilling by the lake – it is a solemn day to remember and honor the brave men and women who have given their lives for this country,” said Senator Tuberville. “Our fallen heroes deserve to be celebrated for more than one day a year. My father served in World War II and I saw firsthand the tremendous sacrifices he made for our great country. If we are going to dedicate entire months to specific causes, the least we can do is designate May as ‘Fallen Heroes Memorial Month.’ I am proud to introduce this bill with Congressman Dan Bishop and look forward to spending May reflecting on the heroism of men and women killed while serving our country.”

Representative Dan Bishop (R-NC) introduced companion legislation in the House.

Since taking office, Senator Tuberville has delivered an annual floor speech honoring our nation’s fallen heroes around Memorial Day. This year, Senator Tuberville decided that one day a year is not enough to properly honor those who have died while serving our country.
