Hulk Hogan Thanks You – for Bringing the Fight to Establish a Flag for America’s Fallen Soldiers to Capitol Hill!

Back in July, when BlogTalkRadio kicked off a national campaign to establish an official flag (below) honoring the 1.6 million U.S. military troops who have died in action since America’s founding 232 years ago, we could only hope Uncle Sam would take notice.

Ditto Hulk Hogan, who did his part to rally the nation by telling us, “The Honor and Remember program is very, very cool.”

Hulk Hogan: Don't tread on our dead.

Well, not only has Uncle Sam since taken notice, he’s taken the cause to Capitol Hill!

Thanks to the work of U.S. Representatives Thelma Drake (R-VA) and Randy Forbes (R-VA), a bill to “designate the Honor and Remember Flag as an official symbol to recognize… the Armed Forces who died in the line of duty” was intro- duced to Congress on Sept. 26.

According to Congressional findings contained in the bill:

—”Since the Revolutionary War, more than one million members of the United States Armed Forces have paid the ultimate price by sacrificing their lives in the line of duty.”

—”The contributions of those fallen members of the Armed Forces are deserving of national recognition.”

—”Currently, there is no officially recognized symbol that acknowledges members of the Armed Forces who died in the line of duty.”

If enacted, the federal legislation would require that the flag be flown at the White House, Capitol, World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, national cemeteries, and other federal grounds.

Hulk Hogan Wants You – to Honor and Remember!

 

In honor of the 1.6 million U.S. military troops who have died in action since America’s founding 232 years ago, BlogTalkRadio is helping to kick off a national campaign to establish an official flag honoring those brave men and women.

 

On Friday, July 4 at 10 p.m. ET, host Becky Davis will present a special one-hour edition of her show, Military Families Voice of Victory.

 

Featured on the program will be George Lutz of Chesapeake, Virginia, whose son, Army Cpl. Tony Lutz, was killed by a sniper in Iraq in December 2005. In the wake of that tragedy, which left a widow and two orphaned children, Lutz created an “Honor and Remember” flag to commemorate all U.S. troops who have died in action.

 

And in May, Lutz launched HonorAndRemember.org to house his growing local petition to persuade Congress to enact a motion declaring the flag the official symbol of fallen soldiers.

 

Yesterday, pro-wrestling legend Hulk Hogan added his name to Lutz’s online petition, bringing the number of signatures to date to 3,056. Country-music star Darryl Worley has also signed the petition.

 

“The Honor and Remember program is very, very cool,” said Hogan.

 

In all, Lutz is aiming to gather 1.6 million signatures on the petition, which listeners across America will be invited to sign during the BTR special, and throughout the summer.

 

But you don’t have to wait ‘til Independence Day to support this patriotic cause; do like Hulk and pen the petition ASAP!
