House Unanimously Approves Boback’s Resolution Designating May as ‘Honor and Remember Month’ in Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania House of Representatives recently unanimously approved a resolution authored by Rep. Karen Boback (R-Columbia/Luzerne/Wyoming) which designates May 2013 as “Honor and Remember Month” in Pennsylvania.

“The brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces who gave their lives for our country deserve the utmost recognition for their ultimate sacrifice,” said Boback, also a member of the House Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee. “It is my hope that House Resolution 287 will encourage citizens, businesses, schools, organizations and the media to take the time to recognize and remember the sacrifice of all our fallen heroes.”

In 2011, Boback introduced Act 19 which recognized the “Honor and Remember Flag” as Pennsylvania’s official symbol which honors and remembers the courageous servicemen and women who have given their lives in the line of duty since the Revolutionary War. The act also required the Department of General Services to place the flag on the grounds of the state Capitol, which can be seen flying over Soldiers Grove.

Soldiers Grove – located in the Pennsylvania Capitol Complex – recognizes the soldiers and sailors from Pennsylvania who served in any of our country’s wars and honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Boback’s video remarks in the House chamber regarding this resolution can be found on her YouTube channel,  For more legislative information, visit her website at
