Tennessee Republican Lawmakers move forward with Pro-Military Legislation

 

Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson

Tennessee State Representative - District 68Nashville, TN – House lawmakers moved forward this week with multiple pieces of legislation designed to help military members across the state.

One of those bills, set to be heard on the House floor next week, will allow the five soldiers killed in the Chattanooga terrorist attack that occurred in July to be eligible for the ‘Tennessee Fallen Heroes Medal’. Currently, the medal is awarded to honor residents of Tennessee killed while serving on active duty or engaged in military support operations involving a conflict with an opposing foreign force.

As introduced, this new legislation expands on this criteria to also allow the honor to be bestowed on those military men and women killed on Tennessee soil during an attack specifically targeting service members.
