Recognizing that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were fought by an all volunteer force. That this force was comprised of less that 1 percent of the U.S Population. That the men and women who fought these wars were subjected to multiple deployments. That these wars lasted over 8 years and 13 years respectably. That combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan were intense and cost the lives of thousands of Americans. That we are a grateful nation that will never forget the sacrifices of those who gave their youth for the Global War on Terror. We request that funds be made available to build a National Iraq and Afghanistan War Memorial in Washington D.C.
