The House unanimously approved House Resolution 48
, legislation Rep. Ryan sponsored to honor the late Marine, Astronaut and U.S. Sen. John Glenn. As a Marine himself, Rep. Ryan has long admired Glenn as a hero and the finest example of a leader anyone might ever ask for. During Rep. Ryan’s walk across America, he visited the town where Glenn lived and went to school. The respect and admiration that everyone had for him was profound.
On Dec. 12, Rep Ryan participated in the Wreaths Across America ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda. Wreaths Across America is a nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Ceremony. Its mission, “Remember, Honor, Teach” is carried out in part by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December in all 50 state capitols. When our soldiers, airmen, Marines and sailors put on our nation’s uniform, they do it out of honor and to protect our freedoms. When they sacrifice on the battlefield, they do that for each other.
