CHARLOTTE, NC – With Honor Action is pleased to see the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in the House of Representatives today. In September, With Honor Action sent a letter to both House and Senate NDAA conferees, almost one quarter of whom served our country in uniform, urging them to set aside differences and provide America’s service members with the resources they need. After working alongside veteran members of Congress, With Honor Action highlighted several key historically bipartisan provisions and we are excited to see twelve of them included in the NDAA. With Honor Action Co-Founder and CEO, Rye Barcott released the following statement:
“I am pleased to see the NDAA, a model of bicameral, bipartisan support for more than 50 years, pass. At a time of complex national security challenges, we at With Honor Action applaud the inclusion of important provisions which are designed to support those who are putting their lives on the line for our country, their families and civilian partners, and our allies around the world.”
