House of Representatives Approves Bill to Designate Navy SEAL Museum Memorial a National Memorial Site
Fort Pierce, Fla. – September 8, 2021 – The Navy SEAL Museum hosted a commemoration in recognition of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Armed Services approving a bill that will designate the Museum’s Memorial a national memorial. U.S. Representative Stephanie Murphy and Michael Waltz offered the bill text as an amendment to the FY22 National Defense Authorization Act during the committee’s September 1 markup.
“We are excited the House Armed Services Committee has passed this legislation,” said Museum Executive Director Grant Mann. “Continuing this process helps the Museum advance our mission, making sure our fallen warriors are never forgotten. We look forward to seeing the NDAA being passed by the full House and Senate and sent to the President for signature.”
The legislation will simultaneously be considered as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2022, a package that is expected to be brought before the House of Representatives imminently. The commemoration highlighting progress of the legislation took place today at the Museum’s Memorial with U.S. Representative Brian Mast in attendance. An abiding Museum supporter, Representative Mast has been instrumental with his enthusiasm for the legislation.
