Congresswoman Miller calls for Woody Williams to Lie in Honor in U.S. Capitol

WASHINGTON D.C. (WVDN) – Congresswoman Carol Miller (R-WV) sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urging her to bring Congresswoman Miller’s resolution to the House floor, which would allow World War II Medal of Honor recipient and West Virginia native Hershel ‘Woody’ Williams to lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol.

The letter reads in part, “As a tribute to the ‘Greatest Generation’ and to honor the life of Woody, we ask you to bring H.Con.Res. 7 to the floor immediately to allow Woody to lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda… I urge you to act quickly. Woody was the last remaining World War II Medal of Honor recipient. Bestowing this honor to Woody would not only recognize his accomplishments, but would also serve as an important tribute to all of the Medal of Honor recipients and veterans from World War II. Thank you for your consideration.”

On June 29, 2022, Woody Williams passed away at the age of 98. He was the last remaining WWII Medal of Honor recipient. Congresswoman Miller previously introduced the bipartisan concurrent resolution, H.Con.Res. 7, which would allow the last remaining Medal of Honor recipient from World War II to lie in honor in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. The resolution is supported by the American Legion, American Veterans (AMVETS), Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA), and the National Military & Veterans Alliance (NMVA).
