Dear Colleague:

Please join us in cosponsoring the Full Military Honors Act!

The legislation provides a full military honors ceremony – including funeral escort honor platoon, military band, firing party, and horse-drawn caisson – to Medal of Honor recipients and Prisoners of War eligible for burial at Arlington National Cemetery.
Currently, full military honors are reserved for senior officers, noncommissioned officers, and servicemembers killed in combat.

Last year, Stars and Stripes published
an article
highlighting the need for this legislation.

We would greatly enjoy your support of the measure. The text is identical to the draft introduced in the 115th Congress. To cosponsor, please contact Matthew Manning (matthew.manning@mail.house.gov) or Jay Hernandez (jorge.hernandez@mail.house.gov) in Congressman
Panetta’s office.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Jimmy Panetta                Van Taylor                       Dan Crenshaw                Elaine Luria
