WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter today introduced legislation that honors military spouses. Shea-Porter’s bill, the Military Spouse Pin Act, authorizes the design of an official military spouse pin. Lapel pins would be available to all spouses of service members or veterans who have served in a combat zone for more than 30 days.
“Military spouses hold their families together at home while their loved ones fight overseas,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter. “For their service, sacrifice, and patriotism, military spouses should be honored alongside the military men and women they support. My bill will help honor these unrecognized heroes.”
Shea-Porter’s bill is endorsed by the National Military Family Association.
