U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell is joining other law makers in reinforcing the country’s continued commitment to leave no service member unaccounted for, especially during combat.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, U.S. Senator Bob Casey and U.S. Senator Pat Toomey both of Pennsylvania have teamed up to introduce a resolution that seeks to ensure that no member of the armed forces who is missing in action or captured should be left behind.
Under the resolution, abandoning the search efforts for members of the armed forces who are missing or captured in the line of duty now or in the future will be considered unacceptable.
Senator McConnell says over the years, he has heard from many Kentucky veterans asking that the United States government do all it can to ensure the safe return of any service members captured in the line of duty as they protect and defend our nation and that he is honored to support his colleagues in this important commitment.
The resolution formalizes the time-honored military tradition of bringing everyone home and leaving no man or woman behind.
