Cotton Praises Passage of Bill Allowing Medal of Honor for SFC Cashe 

Washington, D.C.  Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement after unanimous Senate passage of his bill that allows the awarding of the Medal of Honor to Sergeant First Class (SFC) Alwyn Cashe. The bill passed the House of Representatives earlier this year.

 

“Alwyn Cashe’s incredible bravery on the battlefield in service of his fellow Americans is worthy of the Medal of Honor. Now, Mr. Cashe’s ultimate sacrifice can be formally recognized by the president and appreciated by our grateful nation,” said Cotton.

 

Background:

 

SFC Cashe exemplified the finest traditions of military heroism when he disregarded his own safety and saved the lives of six fellow soldiers despite his serious injuries during Operation Iraqi Freedom in October of 2005. Cashe later died from his wounds, which included severe burns over 70% of his body.

 

The bill text may be found here.
