Supporting Wisconsin National Guard
I was proud to have had two bills I authored with Senator Patrick Testin relating to our Wisconsin National Guard members be signed into law by Governor Scott Walker.
First, was Assembly Bill 943, which provides for reemployment rights, death benefits and continuation pay benefits for National Guard members on state active duty. The bill passed both the Wisconsin State Assembly and the Wisconsin State Senate unanimously.
Second, was Assembly Bill 522, which modifies the membership requirements for incorporation of a Red Arrow Club. This legislation aims to honor and recognize the importance of members of the 32nd Infantry Division. Originally formed from joint units of Wisconsin's and Michigan's National Guard during World War I, the 32nd logged a total of 654 days of combat during World War II, more than any other United States Army division.
Surely, a big thank you to all the men and women of our National Guard, and certainly to all those who serve our nation.
