Latta Introduces Resolution in Honor of the 100th Anniversary of U.S. Entry into World War I
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green), a Co-Chair of the Congressional French Caucus, has introduced a resolution with his caucus colleagues to express gratitude and appreciation to the members of the United States Armed Forces for their bravery during World War I. The resolution was introduced on the 100th anniversary of the nation’s entry into the Great War. A similar measure was introduced recently in the French Senate. Joining Latta in introducing the resolution were French Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Joe Wilson, Rep. Adam Schiff, and Rep. Bill Keating.
“A century ago, approximately two million Americans, including two of my Great-Uncles, answered the call to fight alongside our allies in France and throughout Europe,” said Latta. “On this anniversary, we remember the 126,000 Americans that gave their lives including more than 53,000 that perished fighting on French soil. The bond our country has with the French people continues to be one of our most important relationships, and this resolution remembers the efforts of the U.S. in helping to bring an end to World War I.”
