Wounded Warrior Project Supports Bill Introduction for Global War on Terrorism Memorial

WASHINGTON, Feb. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) applauds the recent introduction of H.R.1115, The Global War on Terrorism Memorial Location Act of 2021. When signed into law, this act will provide the Congressional authority needed to build the Global War on Terrorism Memorial in the Reserve of the National Mall in Washington, DC. The Global War on Terrorism Memorial will be a monument dedicated to the brave men and women who fought and made the ultimate sacrifice in the wars against terrorism since Sept. 11, 2001.

"As we approach the 20-year mark since the 9/11 attacks, Wounded Warrior Project is proud to support this fitting tribute that will stand alongside other notable monuments in DC. May it serve as a prominent reminder of the brave men and women who fought and sacrificed so much for their country," said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. "We believe this generation of warriors has earned their own place on the mall and should be recognized and honored for their service at the Global War on Terrorism Memorial."

This legislation was introduced by co-sponsors who are combat veterans, Reps. Jason Crow (D-CO) and Mike Gallagher (R-WI), with the full support of WWP and other veterans service organizations. WWP fully supports this effort, and its goal is to see the bill enacted before Memorial Day 2021.
