Two other pending bills the Legion supports are the Veterans Day Moment of Silence Act (H.R. 2498) that would encourage two minutes of silent reflection nationwide every Veterans Day, and the Caring for the Fallen Act (H.R. 4168). This measure would transfer responsibility for the care and maintenance of Clark Veterans Cemetery in the Philippines to the American Battle Monuments Commission. http://www.legion.org/legislative/162720/legion-testifies-pending-house-bills
