Today there are very few things both sides of the political aisle can agree on, but this might be one — the Greatest Generation.

On May 26, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), along with 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), and John Hoeven (R-ND), introduced a bipartisan resolution “Recognizing and honoring the sacrifices and accomplishments of the Greatest Generation.”

Citing the 16 million Americans who served in the Armed Forces during World War II and the 400,000 who lost their lives, the resolution urges all those within the United States:

(A) to celebrate the Greatest Generation;


(B) to remember the way the Greatest Generation united under extreme enemy threat and at great risk to themselves to protect the freedom and liberty afforded to all individuals in the United States.

Introduced just five days before Memorial Day, the resolution seeks to honor those who have “borne the high cost of freedom.”
