Senate Passes Resolution Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge

In recognition of the Battle of the Bulge beginning 75 years ago today, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution last week commemorating this anniversary.

S. Con. Res 23 honors the valiant efforts of the Allied Forces in December 1944, as well as those who made the ultimate sacrifice in this last major German offensive in Western Europe during World War II. There were 89,000 American casualties in this 38-day battle, and 19,000 American soldiers lost their lives. The Allied victory in this battle helped make possible the final defeat and surrender of Germany in May 1945.

The resolution was introduced by Senators Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and cosponsored by Senators Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Todd Young (R-Ind.), John Boozman (R-Ark.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), John Kennedy (R-La.), John Barasso (R-Wyo.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.),  Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Doug Jones (D-Ala.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) and Benjamin Cardin (D-Md.).
