Rep. Mary Fallin, R-Oklahoma City, and other women in Congress honored women serving in the military and veterans at a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery this week, just a few days before Memorial Day. The ceremony included the dedication of a memorial wreath for those women who died in service to the country.
Fallin is the co-chair of the Women in the Military Task Force in the House.
She said, “No one doubts the great contributions that women have made to our Armed Forces. Our nation owes these servicewomen a great debt. For those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, that debt is even greater and can never be repaid. Today’s ceremony served as a tribute to the enormous heroism, courage and patriotism displayed by all servicewomen and female veterans.”
