Politician Refuses To Honor WWII Hero

You may not have heard about Hershel Woodrow “Woody” Williams before, but the World War II Marine was awarded the Medal of Honor during the battle of Iwo Jima.

Sadly, Chief Warrant Officer Williams passed away Wednesday at the age of 98. He was the last surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipient. To salute William’s heroism, West Virginia representative Carol Miller put forth a resolution to have Williams lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol.

See if you can guess Nancy Pelosi’s decision.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to ignore a resolution sent to her by West Virginia representative Carol Miller that would allow the last surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipient to lie in honor at the US Capitol.

The veteran in question, Woody Williams, passed away on Wednesday at the age of ninety-eight, serving in the Pacific Theater of World War II, and most notably fighting in the battle of Iwo Jima.

Williams advanced on Japanese pillboxes under heavy fire, alone, to clear a route for the tanks.

“He devoted his life to veterans and Gold Star Families,” she wrote. “He and his Foundation have established 103 Gold Star Families Memorial Monuments across the United States, with more than 72 additional monuments under way. He played a critical role in helping veterans throughout his community and will be sorely missed.”

House Judiciary Committee Republicans blasted Pelosi’s inaction on the resolution, saying that the fact she’s ignoring it tells “all you need to know about the Speaker.”

If you’re looking for a hero, Williams would have been your guy. Unfortunately, the House Speaker couldn’t care less about the men who fought and died for this country.

You can see Williams’ actions in Iwo Jima here. Take a moment to read about this American hero.

UPDATE: West Virginia politicians are making it happen, and Mr. Williams will lie in the U.S. Capitol!

  1. Pelosi is a disgrace to California and the U.S. House of Representatives. She brings nothing but shame to the office she occupies.

  2. Mike47 – Agreed. I would usually wish she would kick the bucket, but I want her to live forever. I’m certain the Lord would have many questions of her when she passes.

    1. But she’s a “Catholic in good standing” just ask anyone at the local abortion clinic. I think I’ll write some fan girl stuff imagining her bony a$$ sashaying up to the pearly gates & not understanding why she can’t get in. And she’ll end up in the other place, where she finds out there’s no booze there.

  3. Pelosi is a vengeful, vindictive scrunt and I take joy in knowing that once she passes from this mortal coil she’ll get everything she deserves.

    And hopefully more.

    1. One would hope. I’m sure I will have much to answer for, but I tried to be decent to people – usually – especially those who served.

      1. She served herself. And got extremely rich in the process. Funny how those who truly serve, don’t. Or, had money before they decided to serve.

  4. Maybe one day when she passes there will be a Conservative (real not Rhino) in as Speaker of the house and in a fit of justice will give her the “same” honor, then again maybe they should have her lay in state over at Blue Plains. (For those that don’t know Blue Plains is the waste treatment plant just across from DC.
