Proposal To Allow Hmong Vets In National Cemeteries

by

Washington, DC(WSAU) Several Wisconsin Congress members are getting behind a proposal to allow Hmong veterans to be buried in national cemeteries. Many Hmong soldiers who ran covert operations to help US troops during the Viet Nam war moved to the US. Members of the Wisconsin Congressional delegation think it's time to recognize these veterans for their service. Congressman Ron Kind is one of the co-authors of the bill that would allow Hmong vets to be buried along side fellow US soldiers. Tammy Baldwin, Steve Kagen and Tom Petri are co-sponsoring the bill. Wisconsin has the third largest population of Hmong in the United States. An estimated 7,000 Hmong who live in the US are believed to have served in the Viet Nam war.
