WASHINGTON (Nov. 5, 2021) – Wounded Warrior Project ® (WWP) CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington today applauded U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan for leading the charge on Capitol Hill for a centrally located Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
On Nov. 3, Senator Hassan joined more than 30 post-9/11 veterans and Gold Star family members from across the country outside the U.S. Capitol to urge the U.S. Senate to pass legislation that would build the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) Memorial on the National Mall.
“Senator Hassan has truly helped lead the charge to build the Global War on Terrorism Memorial at a centrally located spot near the existing war memorials on the National Mall, and for that, I want to thank her,” Linnington said.
WWP coordinated the attendance of more than 30 post-9/11 veterans at this week’s event on the U.S. Capitol lawn. They were joined by Senator Hassan, as well as U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), U.S. Reps. Jared Golden (D-Maine), Jason Crow (D-Colo.), Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) and others who support legislation to authorize construction of the GWOT Memorial in the centrally located “Reserve” area of the National Mall.
